Oro Dulce is an immersion into an agrarian artisana l production process\, aiming to generate a discussion about new forms of u rban-rural habitability in a territory of growing interconnectivity and hyb ridization\; in a land that shakes constantly\; with an increasingly global ized culture. The project originated in rural Pichingal located in the Maul e Region in Chile where artist Francisca Benitez joined the annual quince m aking activities of her family. The actions were documented in this 90-minu te video. It is a performance scripted and directed by the artist&rsquo\;s mother\, occurring every fall and involving a fluctuating number of partici pants. The work is about knowledge transmission\, immaterial patrimony\, an d anonymous creative practices that exist despite the &ldquo\;mall culture& rdquo\; that grows so rapidly and devastatingly in the area. It is about an alternative economy based on another type of gold standard\; an edible cap ital. It is about life\; about love\; a golden substance that covers every horizontal surface inside individuals&rsquo\; homes in April\, allowing the family to come together and grow.

\n

On view for the first time in Ne w York\, Oro Dulce was originally exhibited at Die Ecke Gallery in Santiago\, Chile in Spring 2011\, along with the 1\,170 lbs of quince jam produced during the filming. For the duration of the exhibit\, the art gall ery became the distribution outlet for the product\, overlapping the presen t and past roles of the corner building as an art gallery and corner store. Reedited for this exhibition\, the video brings awareness to the process o f making behind the food we eat\, which is so often anonymous. Cuchifritos Gallery&rsquo\;s location within the Essex Street Market serves as an ideal venue for an intimate glimpse into a process rooted in tradition\, bringin g together an entire community.

Reception: Wednesd ay\, March 5th from 5-7pm
