What can a potato tell us about ourselves? What does it say about the construction of national identity? What role can new narratives around it play in creating expanded social imaginaries? These are some of the questions that lead Cooking Potato Stories: a multilayered translocal story that follows the routes and roots of the potato through the context of Galicia (Spain), Colombia and The Netherlands - based on her own experience living among these places - to address forgotten colonial legacies and the wider context of political, social, and emotional relationships.
She proposes an encounter of stories around the potato that questions the ideologies, power and subjectivities behind the existing narratives as a contribution to an ongoing decolonization of thought. Using ingredients such as heritage, history, the imaginary, tradition, and autobiography she trials recipes of knowledge that unfold different aspects of the potato's history to push a new social memory about it. The project seeks to confront the legacies of colonialism and reconfigure relationships with oneself, family, community, and the natural world.
