Corazonada

Performance, drawings and sculpture

Corazonada is a project that consists of drawings, photographs, and sculptures of various dimensions that are installed in a chapel as the milieu for a performance.

​​

In art and literature, the heart has always been considered the most essential organ of the body, as both the physical pump and the symbolic home for our emotions.

 

In Catholic communion the blood of Jesus Christ is represented in wine, and the flesh in bread. These are partaken in – at once as symbolic and physical.

 

The project celebrates London’s magnificent diversity, bringing together people from different cultures and diverse socio-economic backgrounds to partake in a secular ceremony of giving and receiving. 

 

This project enacts how cultural, religious, and language barriers are all transcended in the action of food sharing, which becomes a non-linguistic method of communication.
