It started with an invitation to lunch.

Ox heart. It was one of 6.

6 Ox hearts were sourced for 6 takes of a scene, and prior to the shoot, these 6 Ox hearts were designated to bin.

8-12 people can generously feed on a nutritiously giving, life forming Ox heart.

Salvaging 3 of the 6, the friend who invited me to lunch gifted me the un-edible parts of 1, and one full 1.

I cooked it. We shared it.

The un-edible parts of these almost discarded Ox hearts, have become material and subject for Aortic deposit (Shack Cooking, 6 takes).

Other chemigram materials include toothpaste, old mascara, pickle juice, black and white chemistry, C41 film, C41 chemistry, expired Kodak Bromide paper and expired fuji paper.

This work was made for  ...and then it Breaks, 2022
a collaborative Exhibition stemmed from dialogue between Katrina Stamatopoulos, Ramona Güntert and Diego Valente.
