SONALI MENEZES: HOW TO CUT A MANGO
All hail mango, queen of the fruits and balm for seasonal depression! How to cut a mango brings together new video and print works by Sonali Menezes based on the theory that if she ate a mango every day, she would no longer be seasonally depressed. She began in the depths of winter and asked close family members to demonstrate on camera how they cut a mango. Sonali continued with one of her favourite things: playing around in the print studio. She finished by assembling her final homage to the mango by exploring her favourite grocery stores in Scarborough.
