Eating Patterns Performance
November 11, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
‘Eating Patterns’ opens on the 11th November 2017 in the galerieGEDOKmuc as part of the pop-up exhibition curated by Diana Popova from the Latvian Centre of Contemporary Art, called ‘Monocular Spectator – Performance for the Camera’.
“Eating Patterns” is a humourous exploration of stereotype and the Latvian kitchen incorporating food, pattern and a self-styled costume. The artist draws upon what she thinks she knows about Latvia, its traditions, food, and people from what she has seen and heard. She sets the scene with hand-created backdrop paintings and a mock kitchen. Her costume is reconstructed from colourful clothes and embroidery. The final and spontaneous ingredient is the performance for the camera. Using the TV cooking show format, the artist will attempt to emulate a Latvian grandma by preparing a typical Latvian dish without the recipe. Question is, can she do it as well as a Latvian grandma? You be the judge.
