Alma Porry Pastorel was born in Rome on September 15, 1914. In the late fifties she moved to Mexico City. A few years later, perfectly healthy, she started organizing her whole life from her bed, which she decided never to leave again.
Every afternoon, family and friends gathered around her bed to talk about and laugh at life, She ended up hosting a sort of salon. To do so, she had to be presentable: every single morning, she carried out – from her bed still  -the thorough ritual of dressing up, putting on perfume and applying her make up.

Installation Description
