Vermut

For my solo exhibition at Centre d’Art La Panera I have created a couple of artworks which are representative of the Catalan culture. The first second is called “Vermut”

Traditionally, vermuts in Catalonia were meant to open the appetite before a big meal. I grew up having a vermut every Sunday before lunch.

Most vermuts have a sweet taste so we combine the drink with salty snacks to balance the palate; like in this case adding olives and clams to the mix. 

With this artwork, I want to focus the attention on the fact that we can drink vermut at any time of the day, and not only as an aperitif before lunch like traditionally.
