A kitchen after a "transexual surgery", a "transgender kitchen"...At this moment is not relevant anymore the fire or the foods that are cooked on the kitchen ordinarily, I mean the common life of this object. The fire is myself and my food doesn’t get eaten but looked upon. Ikea, -the capitalism-, serving the Art and in a self-service way I have served myself from Ikea to be assisted in my "artistic nutrition", so that means home technicians facilitating the kitchen’s installation for an unprecedented artistic landscape. As a final point we have a collage of multiple techniques such as drawing, painting, video, digital photography on the surface of this home appliance.
