Traces of the culinary pervade the history of the avant-garde and the neo-avant-garde. Whether attempting to destroy the distinction between art and everyday life, to reclaim the creativity of the domestic sphere, to reincorporate smell or taste into artistic experience, to provoke disgust, to invite participation, to destroy the separation between audience and art, or to turn art into a series of recipes, avant-garde art reinvents the practice of cooking, eating and drinking. Drawing on Marinetti’s The Futurist Cookbook, Dali’s Les Diners de Gala, The Decadent Cookbook, The Neo-Decadent Cookbook, Daniel Spoerri’s Gastronoptikum, Eat Art, the use of food in performance art, and the culinary preoccupations of Walter Benjamin, Gertrude Stein, Kurt Schwitters, Elsa Von Freytag Loringhoven, Leonora Carrington, and many more, we will develop an experimental workshop that explores the relationship between art and food.
This session will take place both online via Zoom and in person at The Southern Belle, Hove, UK. The Artists Residence can be found on 3 Waterloo Street, Hove, BN3 1AQ.
