Transspecies Kitchen, 2022

Performance — 06.07.2024 (past)

We eat, digest and decompose. You also find these essential processes in the geological evolutions of our planet. In Transspecies Kitchen (2022), these are combined, allowing us to reconnect with the planet. In a one-off activation, the artist invites you to come and taste what is being prepared in the kitchen, using fermentation. Feel how cooking and eating brings people together. With each other and with the environment. 

 

In collaboration with Natalie (Elder-Lab). This performance is sold out.

More about this work

We eat, digest and decompose. These processes are not only essential for living organisms. You also find them in the geological evolutions of our planet. Biology and geography are related. How do we restore that connection?

Transspecies Kitchen (2022) is a kitchen made of stone containing information about the earth’s natural formation. Food preparation initiates similar processes, scaled to our human body. The energy is gathered from fermentation: the natural process in which micro-organisms transform plants and vegetables, just like our digestive process.

In our own body, these processes have a big impact on how we feel. They determine our taste, smell, sleepiness and euphoria, or cause physical discomfort. In the kitchen, the artist connects the inside of our human body with the environment.

In a one-off activation of the kitchen, the artist invites you to come and taste what is being prepared in the kitchen. Feel how cooking and eating brings people together. With each other and with the environment.
