A photographic and sculptural study of mondongo.
The wax casts below capture the intricate texture of the reticulum, a section of a ruminant stomach.
The materiality of the organ and it’s capacity to expand and contract directly informs the casting process.
Each cast differs as the internal fabric is stretched and distorted, the wax is shaped by these contortions as it comes into contact with the surface of the flexible mould.
These works were developed during my stay at Residencia Corazón, in La Plata, Argentina.
Muchas gracias to Rodrigo Mirto, Juan Pablo Ferrer and the artists in residence for their warm welcome, engagement with, and support of diverse creative practices.
