Collection: Jasmine Dillavou - Boca Sucia

“Boca Sucia” is storytelling turned -oral history turned -transfer of knowledge turned -hieroglyphic

Using red and pink lipsticks, the artist uses her mouth to transform recipes, family stories and chismeinto physical marks. Lipstick on lips on paper.

The act of orally transmuting histories is a ritual practiced in Latin cultures since forever. It is a tradition and rite of passage. These pieces act as markers of the feminine, powerful, and profound past.

Womxn in a kitchen smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee. Big sisters telling you stories while applying makeup in the mirror. Secrets whispered behind overworked and wrinkled palms. Grandma’s Recipe Books with waterlogged pages. We are just filling in the blanks.
