Participating artists have each explored the political and cultural ramifications of food production and consumption in their work. For this project each has devised a course of a menu that will form the basis of an exhibition at BLINDSIDE and a one-off dinner. Drawing on the culinary expertise of Sarah Trotter, food stylist and co-founder of Trotski and Ash, the Play with your Food Dinner will be served up at Auction Rooms in a one-night-only fusion of eating and performance. Participants can book their place at the dinner-table by visiting BUS Projects. The project takes its cue from artistic experiments in food from earlier periods of the avant-garde and post-war art: from F.T Marinetti’s Futurist Cookbook to the more recent public art practices of Gordon Matta-Clark or Rikrit Tiravanija.
