"Gargantua " by Franšois Rabelais, was a voracious mythical giant, from the late middle ages. In the installation he symbolizes the prosperity of the
" Western World " build on the "death from starvation " of the " Third World ".
The installation consists of a " videomorph" and hundred disposable
cardboard plates on which the same morph is printed. The plates with the
morph development: birth, identification, death from starvation, transitory,
and re´ncarnation, refer to the contradiction between the utility of the
plate and the plate as a decorative object. The number of the disposable
plates refers to the industrial nature of mass-consumption.
