Bacon Displacement





Bahía Soliman

Tulum in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo

A photographic image of a mixed-media installation created in Tulum in 2018, comprised of freshly cooked bacon placed in the sand and on top of found objects and detritus on the property where the retreat was being held.

"I had spoken with Amy a few times before going down to Mexico but we hadn't developed a clear picture of what she intended to produce. Upon arrival, it was easy to smell the gentrification in the air and it didn't take long to realize we needed to cook bacon and lay them out in the sand:"
