Here the raw elements of borragán’s art boil down to the MOUTH and the STONE. Think, if you will, of all the ways the human mouth serves as a threshold between an individual and the world at large. Similarly, contemplate how many ways stones and their particulates represent site, the earth, the material universe, and its non-living scaffolding. The action at the center of each of borragán’s experiences is TO INGEST and to inscribe and reveal an image through this action. This is the alchemy. In his environment of magenta phyto lights and dusty air, groups ingest stones together. In this case, they eat bucaros, which are small, unfired clay vessels eaten by the Spanish Aristocracy in the 17th century.
