Feel the V – Naturalism in Art and Food
May 5, 2018 @ 14:00 - 17:00
We are what we eat. In fact, eating itself is a political act, and what we consume impacts our society. These considerations drive us to champion the consistent use of natural products from our region and inform our position against standardized foodstuffs. We reject mass production based exclusively on price, not origin, that floods local markets with bland tastes. We renounce a world of shelves filled with perfectly straight but flavorless cucumbers, instead of their tastier but crooked relatives sourced from local farms.
We treat people much the same way. Don’t we all apply certain visual standards, spurning that which is not thin, smooth and flawless? Those who don’t make the cut naturally are encouraged to use a different kind of knife: a virtual one via photoshop or a real one in the hands of a plastic surgeon.
We support #feeltheV, a cooperative project between Ida Aniz and Ellebasi Gorengpeng from the artist collective Vulvae. It seeks to draw attention to these disingenuous norms and raise awareness of the damage they cause. Together we are planting our flag on behalf of natural bodies and natural ingredients.
In celebration of this new partnership we’ve created a sweet, highly unusual delicacy for each guest to take home. It is a statement against both obtruse beauty ideals and standardized products and foodstuffs.
Come along and evaluate the project for yourself. We’ll be showcasing the artists’ work in our eatery’s front windows. The ceremonial opening will be held on 5 May starting at 2 pm.
