The soup is delicious
Mauricio Limón de León
A knife chopping onion, an ass fades in and out, a hand pressing a piece of meat, a dog with his master, (he is naked and has a small penis) a knife chopping garlic, pealing an avocado, a vagina is fading in and out...
Imagine yourself lying down on the floor, facing the ceiling. Your arms and legs are extended. Standing over you there is a person you know, it is a special moment. (the status is equal, there is not someone that you feel is more or less powerful than you…) You have to focus on the rhythm of your breath to allow yourself to bear their weight for some minutes. How do you describe your emotions in this situation? What do you imagine?
Mauricio Limón is showing the second phase of his current work "Trust comes on foot and leaves on horseback" an installation based on murals, paintings, carpets and sound at Rozenstraat in Amsterdam, relating to their current exhibition about Michel Cardena. Inspired by Cardena´s Video "The Soup is delicious" Limón takes this title to introduce a radio broadcast in collaboration with Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, with interviews about social interactions and sexual arousal, structures of power and its insertion over the body, cinema and pornography.
