This project consists of a series of photo collages that explores the artistic notion of "anthropophagy", as a cannibalistic appropriation of objects and sculptures from different cultures that are consumed, reassembled, and regurgitated as new artworks.
Inspired by the "Anthropophagic Manifesto" written by Oswald de Andrade in 1928, in which the Brazilian poet calls to South American artists to use a systematic incorporation of the foreign influence as a way to create something entirely new, these collages question the idea about identity – mixed sculptures, mixed races, mixed cultures, all put together in a new multifaceted and plural thing.
Also, all the images used in the collages are carefully selected from the broad range of public-domain works made available by The Metropolitan Museum of Art. They have more than 406,000 hi-res images of public-domain works from their collection, all of which can be downloaded, shared, and remixed without restriction. This incredible collection has objects spanning 5,000 years of culture from around the globe, which represents an incredible body of work.
