PerforMANcedinners & Edible Sculpture
In a mixed format of conference and performance, the “unconventional” artist César Martínez, exposed the Mesoamerican origins of legendary secret agent, James Bond 007, revealing that the agent’s roots are prehispanic.
César Martínez, through verified historical facts, lifting the colonialist attitude, unveiled the mysteries of the mirror of Tezcatlipoca and its current manifestation in the iPad and the iPhone.
With the feel of a ritual, the artist prepared an “ARTEntado” (art attack) with edible sculptures; symbolic tasting using the forms of first world weapons juxtaposed against Mesoamerican flavors and sacramental wine.
