In Lucy + Jorge Orta's sculptures and installations, containers of all kinds appear recurrently and play an major symbolic role. Épicerie carries various packaging and jars, cast in aluminum, but stripped of all brands or labels. This absence of images reveals both the pure aesthetics of the container but also questions the freedom of choice of the consumer manipulated by the advertising seduction.
