The Tortilla Workshop
Windsor Printmaker’s Forum closed our summer 2015 residency with Arturo Herrera’s Tortilla Workshop in the WPF gallery space on July 17th, 2015. Arturo Herrera was WPF’s summer artist-in-residence from June 1st – July 18th, 2015.
“In The Tortilla Workshop. I share traditional Latin American forms of cooking through video projection and live performance. I initially presented it as a workshop at Broken City Lab in 2012, in the series Skills for Goods. The Tortilla Workshop evolved into a performance / workshop hybrid idea; the concept was really inspired by watching my mother donating her time making food for her church.
In this piece, I explore the construction of my identity through notions of sexuality and transnationalism. The Tortilla Workshop represents my attempt to bring sexuality and identity together.” – Arturo Herrera
Arturo Herrera, was born in Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras. Herrera is an artist that uses sculpture, performance, socially-engaged and photography to speak of issues of immigration, sexuality and identity.
