The Fourth Part of Human Body Project
The allusion to the transport, the vehicle or continent of the jaba that carries products identified with popular needs and customs, is the most recent in Doña Martha Jimenez's speech. The artist recreates the identity issue by proposing jaba as a continent and feature that characterized a particular socio-economic period and ended by defining the Cuban people as a temporary, immediate and creative. The jaba continent could also allude to the export of a more intimate souvenir, to a piece of national carnality that moves and is not exhausted.
