RESPECT is an ongoing food performance done in collaboration with women members from various self-help groups who participated in project Equilibrium.
During the project I worked with these women members for a span of more than 6 months and we developed a mutual respect for each other. The work makes the idea of giving respect more literal by consuming it through food. Papads (Papadum) are a very common side dish in this area, and making them is primarily women oriented activity. Several papas were made with a cut out of the word RESPECT, and were roasted and eaten together. The food performance served as another excuse to come together and talk about our experiences from Equilibrium.
