Last weekend (9th of July) we ran the second (and third) of our Autobiographical Food Show’s. It’s a wonderfully simple idea – loosely inspired by Ready Steady Cook – we invite two artists to come and cook a dish for the audience and while they do they are led in a conversation around their practice by our friend and host Terry OConnor .
We talk about practice – what it means to be an artist – what role our lives play in the things that we make – and how we take care of ourselves and others through what we do – all while making food that is then shared with the audience. Its an artist talk without the endless talking and that tries to approach how we think talk and do practice in a different way. The first one took place in Sheffield and featured Bobby Baker and Selina Thompson.
Sitting #2 and #3 took place in a tent as part of Hillsfest in Sheffield and featured 4. Below is a mini photo diary of sorts.
It was a wonderful and weird event that went to some beautiful fragile places and resulted in some wonderful food.
There will be another one in Leeds in November – so keep your eyes out for that as tickets will go fast!
