This series, made up of a trio of entomological boxes tries to recreate the Insectarium idea,​​ only that in place of arthropods, the exposed specimens are vegetables.

Of the three specimens exposed, the best known is the Capsicum anuum, commonly known as peppers, the other two are the gombo, Abelmoscos esculentus and the margosa, Momordica charandia, used mostly in Asian and African cuisine.

Each vegetable is presented with its Latin name, however, everything around them seems to hide the specimen’s image: ornaments, expanded polystyrene barquette, disposable tablecloths, are a way to make the product "sensual", leaving aside its nutritional attribute. However, each ornament is but a detail of specimen’s dissections repeated continuously to turn it into a decorative motif.


The expanded polystyrene barquet, a new element in the composition, is an eye wink to the current food industry, a hygiene synonymous which extracts the product from its organic environment, because does not look "attractive" on the shelves of the well-known shopping centers.

The other element, the tablecloths which resemble cups and glasses’ embroidery in some restaurants, have been recovered from a coffee to challenge their destiny: to end up in the trash after the snack’s 15 or 20 glorious minutes.

Thus, these eatable vegetables, exposed in their boxes, lose their nature in spite of their name and the decoration as a constant call to themselves. Out of context, each person chooses their reading parameters through the filters that their culture has instilled in them.
