Action realized 12th May 2015, Subirats, Alt Penedes for el Congreso de Arte y Paisaje organised by Miguel Vidal and held at Vinseum, Villafranca del Penedes.
‘Apetito’ is the first of a number of action/interventions in the landscape….placed here in the Alt Penedes .
‘Apetito’ is a dense collection of concepts. A pile of earthen spoons on the edge of a field, a line of red cord indicating the positions to be sown in a freshly ploughed field and on the land Yendell labours. Using a mattock to scoop out the earth, she plants the spoons one by one, each is situated swiftly and carefully in position, sentinel like the spoons hold their position. A final sifting of earth and the red cord rewound; the work is completed. As night falls, Yendell places a spoon on her shoulder and looking forwards walks out of the screen to some other place. ‘Appetito’: women’s complex and subtle relationship with food, its production, its preparation and consumption from distant time ‘til now made visible in all its layers of subtlety.
