My name is Alice, I am student in NCAD (National College of Art and Design, Dublin)
With my classmates we are organizing an end of the year show and for some of us it will take place in a private house in Dublin during 48 hours, the 4th and 5th of May. It is for us a way to put art outside the galleries and make a stand on an (a)live art. Each artist exhibiting is also invited to give a talk, a workshop, to perform...
During that show, I will use the kitchen because after a series of throat infections I focused on my diet and wider on our feeding process. Moreover, as I feel my body as my meeting point with the world, I thought I wanted to create a meeting point for few bodies. A meal!

And that's here I need you to make it possible, I will invite for each meal during this 2 days maximum 30 people to come, sit and share around a table composed with one chef's help.
You can find some of his works and commitments here > https://www.facebook.com/lafabriquefoodevents
The Sunday dinner may be served with the 'Irish Pineapple Ale', a craft beer from the not yet born Medusa Brewing Co.
We will work as far as possible with seasonal products bought from local producers on the theme of diet theories like macrobiotic, blood type theory, raw food diet...we might well offer a humorist revisit of modern painting trough the plates (abstract expressionist painting - Jackson Pollock, abstract art - Wassily Kandinsky, colorfield painting - Mark Rothko) but we are still in progress on that point! ;)
Overall, the idea is to create a convivial moment, my only answer to what does that mean to eat. Then, my research will be exhibit on the wall and each meal will be in purpose only a proposition and open to others questions. Yours.Theirs.
Each meal will be an invitation to get together and share. The chef and myself will be the hosts, visitors will be our guests. We will eat all together (guests+hosts), as we will be making the art all together (viewers+makers).
At the end, I will publish a booklet about the process: my research and interviews, the event (photographs and feedbacks)
Otherwise, I will lead a one hour workshop on body awa/kening/reness.
