The pre-launch of the 2nd issue of BYPASS will be accompanied by the video-installation “Aesthetic Nutrition” by artist Ana Cardim, curated by BYPASS.


The video installation proposes “aesthetical nutrition,” which provides a reflection on the socio-economic issue generated by the imbalance of values of equivalence established by market rules that operate within the contemporary capitalist system. Gold, being a precious commodity, is used in a quantitatively disproportionate (but financially beneficial) comparison with rice, which, qualitatively speaking, forms the basic diet of more than half the world’s population and something that, over the centuries, has ensured the survival of those living in Asia. In this way, the clash and the gap between values that nurture ambitious and redundant needs for power and ostentation, and the values that allow people to satisfy basic nutritional and physiological human needs is highlighted.
