The project is a collaboration with María Paula de Oro & María Alejandra Alarcón. It’s a site-specific4-channel media installation: Audio, Projection, Performance and Object in which the temperature and atmosphere of the location play an important role.
We took Edgar Oliver's text and performance "My mother is a hit run driver" as inpiration. In this black, humorous text, he talks about the indifference of hurting others, the cold blood, how the cruelty of killing someone can be kill can be indifferent and even stimulate the hunger to eat a banana split and enjoy it like never before. This point prompted us to reverse the installation and focus on what was what is happening with banana cultivation in the jungles of Ecuador and Colombia. How the workers and their respective families are treated, how it can even cost them their even cost them their lives, and yet the Chiquitita Banana company goes unpunished and continues to sell this product to everyone, including Edgar's mother.
For this we have the basement, 30 ripe bananas, a mirror, a projector, a video camera, speakers for the sound, a translucent curtain, a table, a spotlight and a poster with chiquitita bananas advertisement.
The general idea is that eating bananas is a disgusting act that alludes to the banana disaster.
