Mercadito & Mentidero
Flores para el Trueque was a performance that took place during the downtown Bogotá Sunday market. The Bogotá market includes a variety of street performers and vendors who sell goods from food to vintage, junk, and new items. It functions on monetary exchanges as well as an economy of barter. Vanderpool's choice in exchanging handcrafted flowers for whatever the customer chose to give her including pesos, sweets, drawings, photos, personal anecdotes, and religious items among others, responded specifically to Colombia being the second largest global exported of cut flowers and the market’s economy.
