Exhibition: The Taste of Meaningful Food
Auckland White Night, Remuera, New Zealand – March 14, 2015
The Taste of Meaningful Food was a performance where I showed five Meaningful Food stories, and included for the first time my very own Meaningful Food, carrots with milk, while serving these carrots with milk to the audience. Guests has the possibility to associate the flavour, smell and look of this meaningful food, to the story itself; they had a chance to connect to the story on a more intimate level and share the emotions described in the video. For me this was a way to give a piece of myself to people: every person’s Meaningful Food story is intimate and emotional, and every time we share our meaningful food with someone else we are sharing something intimate and emotional.
Exhibition: In Search of Meaningful Food
Oltredimore Art Gallery, Bologna, Italy – November 15-29, 2014
A three weeks exhibition in which I showed a 30 minutes video with Meaningful Food stories; these stories were only in italian form participants who chose to share their video in Italian instead of english. On the closing night of the exhibition I gave a presentation on the project and shared some of the insight that emerged from analysing the videos collected.
