Tomate, Membrillo y Limón:
Residency at Barbecho, Nov-Dec 2017


Exploring the flavours, textures, colours, histories and stories behind three ingredients: all grown in Spain and forming a strong cultural base for Spanish cooking. Through experimental food making, performance and installation, I explored food as a platform for new discussions, change and togetherness, while asking herself:

Where do I draw the line between chef and artist?
Can I be both?
Can the gallery be the kitchen and the kitchen be the gallery?
If the food is the artwork, what is left after we eat it?

This investigation took shape across 6 dinners (2 for each of the 3 main ingredients), a workshop and various collaborations with local artists, supported by a close relationship with the architect behind Barbecho, Pia Mendaro.

During the residency, and through various collaborations, I produced the MESA kit - a collection of 3 objects, in a series of 12 sets, taking my food project Mesa as a starting point. The kit is what remains as a physical object, after the experience of each dinner has passed. It's a condensation of each event I held at Barbecho and, therefore, tells the collective story of Tomate, Membrillo y Limón.

The kit is composed by objects designed and produced by various artists in collaboration with me, while in residence at Barbecho. Each object was utilised as the vessel for a specific dish in each of the six dinners. These objects work as carriers of memory of each event, and so are the perfect vehicle for re-enacting them in new formats and contexts.
