Alessio Mamo [b. 1976, Sicily, Italy] is currently based in Catania, and focuses on todays social, political and economic issues. Dreaming Food was a conceptual project about hunger issues in India. Despite economic growth, a majority of the Indian population still lives in extreme poverty, with close to 70% of its citizens residing in rural areas where conditions are extreme. Dreaming Food was inspired by the amount of food waste reported in the West. By going to a place where hunger is a reality and asking people to imagine what their dinner table might look like, Mamo reminds us that food should not be taken for granted.
