(...) Bread, the ritual of making it and its sale, was the starting point of my work. In everyday life the use of bags is associated to the act of buying bread. (...) I made the bags using the model of “bread bags”, treating each one as a unique universe, where textiles combine, different in colour, texture, weight, sheen, pattern and value. Each one has its own personality and its own composition (in the outside and inside). So I gave them names. It is the name that distinguishes and gives existence to people and things and establishes the correct relationship between objects and its owners.
