Arroz con Popote

An exploration of sexuality, identity, and anthropocenic anxieties, Arroz con Popote is a series conceived from the Mexican euphemism "arroz con popote" (to eat rice pudding with a straw), slang used to describe men as homosexual, with or without any intention to offend. "He likes arroz con popote." The series takes ownership of the phrase and transforms it to address contemporary issues through installation, performance, and photographic work.
