Greta Alfaro (1977), artist.
The series of photographs Invención (Invention) are the documentation of an installation created at the museum Ex Teresa Arte Actual in Mexico City, a former church. She built a chapel-like room on its presbytery. Its interior was completely decorated with edible meringue, imitating the forms and motives of Mexican Baroque. The spectators were invited to eat it.
This work reflects on the relation between ideas grounded on Baroque and those of our own times: thoughts on impermanence in relation to vanitas, and the importance of images and ephemeral displays.
