"Ivonne Adel- Bureos, aka Play is Soul Food, shares her intimate and unique body prints and drawings created insitu at Anno Domini in March 2021.


Printmaking with bodies:

Play Is Soul Food (PISF) and Anno Domini have teamed up and created an exciting new mixed medium body printmaking exhibition, with full sized direct body prints and drawings. The collection of more than 10 large, medium, and smaller scale works, created insitu at Anno Domini is being presented in the current show, also titled Play Is Soul Food.


During her visit to California earlier in February this year, Play Is Soul Food spontaneously organized a rare performance with Cherri Lakey and Brian Eder, owners of the internationally known artspace, Anno Domini. These distinctive, one of a kind creations are the artifacts of that performance presented as a cohesive exhibition accompanied with a short documentary video which gives the viewers an introspective/impression of the actual live perfor­mance which took place late March 2021."

Play Is Soul Food, and Brian Edar, co-owner of Anno Domini, worked together for the first time during this secret performance to create this selection of elegant, provocative, and play­ful mixed medium paper based art pieces. With their instinctive spirit and the perfect mixture of trust, communication, precision and respect needed, the two created an impressive collection of raw, touching and delicate artworks. The outcome of this unique performance is now forming the key elements of Play Is Soul Food.


Play Is Soul Food invites the viewer with her Play Dirty performance and artworks to explore the impact and power of Play. The artist strong­ly understands playing as an activity for all ages, way beyond being a child. The exhibition reveals and elevates specifi­cally the importance of Adult Play.


In this new collection of raw, fine art prints and drawings, Play Is Soul Food takes us into a visual journey to question, rethink, and nurture the true importance of play in our daily lives, not just with the people who surround us, but also the relationship we have with ourselves; confronting our insecurities, celebrating our imperfections, experi­menting with our sexualities, and finding balance within our physical and cosmic realities.
