Fair Tale – a Food Installation

at the Art Festival 48 Stunden Neukölln – a Change of Perspective – from 14th to 16th of June

The installation of Tainá Guedes gives the viewer visual, tactile and gustatory changes in perspective, with a sensual exploration of the theme of “The destruction of cultural roots.” The cassava root, which is part of the founding myth of the indigenous Brazilian Tupi-Guarani, serves as the medium of installation. She tells metaphorically about the roots of a culture, about losing identity, oppression, annihilation and the destruction of livelihood, to the importance of cultural roots of our perspective on the globalized world today. In public, the Tupi-Guarani have become invisible and their suffering remains largely unrecognized.
