Cooking Potato Stories
What can a potato tell us about ourselves? The potato is cultivated almost everywhere, and globally cherished as an important part of local food cultures. Ana Núñez Rodríguez set out on a quest to unearth local ‘potato stories’ across the world, including her own childhood memories and her migratory trajectory between Spain, the Netherlands and Colombia.
About the exhibition
By collecting stories small and large, personal and historical, factual and fictional, Núñez Rodríguez investigates how the potato packs a universe of symbolic information on identity, domination and social differentiation. The many stories told in this exhibition present the humble potato as the product and cause of violence, famine and migration across the world. Yet they also talk about survival, sharing, belonging and family. The continuous transformation and adaptation of the potato become a metaphor for human resilience, and for how our identities are rooted in the stories we tell each other.
