DESCRIPTION
I buy the newspaper of the day. I read it and select the news that are oppressive towards the corporalities of immigrants, women and non-binary identities. I rip the news that legitimize this kind of thinking in society. I put the pieces of paper one by one inside my mouth and start chewing them. I absorb the ink as if it could absorb its symbolic meaning. I keep introducing news in my mouth, one by one until the newspaper ends. I have a big news bolus in my mouth. I keep chewing for a while. I take the bolus out of my mouth and leave it on the floor.



Reflejo Diario

DESCRIPCIÓN
Compro el periódico del día. Lo leo y selecciono las noticias que son opresivas hacia las corporalidades de inmigrantes, mujeres y identidades no binarias. Recorto las noticias que legitiman este tipo de pensamiento en la sociedad. Pongo los trozos de papel uno por uno dentro de mi boca y empiezo a masticarlos. Absorbo la tinta como si pudiera absorber su significado simbólico. Sigo introduciendo noticias en mi boca, una por una hasta que el periódico termine. Tengo un gran bolo de noticias en mi boca. Sigo masticando por un tiempo. Me saco el bolo de la boca y lo dejo en el suelo.
