View of Alacena Perdida Installation

“Alacena Perdida” (Lost Pantry) attempts to create a place for thoughtful reflection on our food security, and our ability to empower ourselves through traditional production and preservation. Catalogued and displayed similarly to a 17th century Cabinet of Curiosities , I show the food products that I have grown and preserved myself or that I have traded. This type of pantry is a rarity in modern times thus rendering it a kind of contemporary cabinet of curiosities.
