An associative piece, exploring labor exploitation in the United States. A medley of audio and visual threads collocating gluttony and hardship. Lisa Lozano’s performance takes place at a society party where guests feast from a vat of honey enveloping the nude performer. The party, a symbol of excess is sharply interrupted by Nancy Mata’s verbal account of her family’s migration from Mexico to California. Mundane, labor motifs – a doorman who opens doors, the repeated scrubbing of a floor being sullied – punctuate the film, rhythmically.
