Mondongo are an Argentinian art collective consisting of Juliana Laffitte, Manuel Mendanha and Agustina Picasso, who founded Mondongo 1999, are not only partial to the stew, but make their work from a „cauldron“ of ingredients:
We’ve used a huge variety of materials in our art, depending on what best reinforces the concept of the work. It’s always a process of experimentation until we finish it.
The amount of work Mondongo put into each piece is extensive, and both intricate and beautiful. They are literally paintings without paint using such materials as thread, beads, plasticine, cookies, and glitter, to name of few. Production is slow and deliberate as the material and concept are intricately jelled: the materials used as metaphorical adjuncts to the concepts.
