: F for foodperformance
was an attempt to see how patient-impatient people could be. As i didn´t
prepare any of the foods used later in the performance i first had to
peel and cut all the fruits i wanted to use for it. A lot of people didn´t
bother watching me do that and just left. Some others were maybe more
interested and stayed to watch the preparation of the fruits and the chocolate
fondue. Because of being together in the space and the mutual interest
for the food people started to talk to me and to eachother. This proofs
that people always talk over food, it´s a trigger for communication.
In the second part of the performance i just handed out the fruit sticks
to the visitors( made individually for every single person present) and
this gift provoked communication again. People talked to me about their
lives, interests, disagreements etc... and in this way made the performance
succesfull as this was my overall idea and goal, to have people talk to
others, to me... And as food is such a basic part of our lives, people
also reacted in a very basic way. For me it was important to give people
something real, something to feel, to smell, to taste as i think that
art sometimes is too static, to disconnected from real life.
