A project by daily services with Angélica Chio.
daily refreshments allows fragmentary readings of the dictionary definition of "color" in the form of the empty bags left after enjoying refreshments with bright colors and surprising flavors.
The artistic action was conceived by daily services more than 10 years ago. It was presented in 2002 at the »Día del mar/by the sea« community day, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; »Rotación XVI«, MUCA Roma, Ciudad de México; »consum a(c)ción«, Los 29 Enchufes, Madrid; and »sox36-Party«, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; among other places.
Having being invited to perform an action in the evening of the summer solstice 2014 at »ANDERS TUN« in Berlin, we started to reflect on the important changes that have taken place in our society in the last 10 to 12 years, and the need to be considered for a new mise-en-scènes of this action.
In our view, one of the biggest changes during this period has been the awakening of a common consciousness about the origins of products we consume. We soon realized that, today, nobody would unquestioningly drink an artificially coloured beverage as was the case in the past. This in mind, we decided to create new daily refreshments using only natural, organic fruits.
Special thanks to Stefan Krüskemper, Michaela Nasoetion and Christiane ten Hoevel for the invitation to ANDERS TUN.
