Chicharrón is the first solo exhibition of Mara Corsino (San Juan, 1979), a Puerto Rican photographer who lives and works in Brooklyn, US. For this occasion, Corsino presents her documentary project by the same name, concentrating on portraits of different women who self-identify as latinas. Chicharrón seeks to explore the expression of latinidad, understood as a narrative imagery, elaborated from shared cultural symbols and images.
The exhibition presents a selection of Haute Food, an annual publication dedicated to the liberties and pleasure of nutrition, through which Corsino continues her photographic dedication to communication two of the most carnal pleasures in life: beauty and food.
Maintaining with her interest with creative interconnections, Chicharrón presents an installation, Chicharrón Volao, that functions as a mise en place for her collaboration with Bairoa, who had a DJ performance during the opening and mixed the exhibition’s ambient soundtrack.
This exhibition is possible thanks to the help of Beta-Local, through their El Resuelve grant, Casa Fantasmes, Tiguere Corp., and Serena Toffetti.
