Last 10 October we had the pleasure to being invited to share our own vision, art and culinary practice during the second edition of an exhibition series curated by Cassandra Edlefsen Lash and Annabelle von Girsewald, “homecomings, etc“.
More pictures of our installation/performance are coming soon.
In the meantime, here you are the sketch we made to design what we served and the text of the curators.
“In the peak of the venue’s architecture, Marco Thiella and Chiara Zanella Coming Home (2014) is discovered as a reprieve in a quested return. Set within a space proposed as one of clarity and rtionality in Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space (1957), that which we know so well rises to the rafters of consciousness as an archetype. Having swayed under the weight of countless suppers, the pressures of conversation, of being worked upon, a form casting shadows reflects traced and anticipated action. The visual artists originally from Venice have been hosting one of Berlin’s first supper clubs, “Metti una sera a cena” (after a 1969 film “One Night at Dinner” by Giuseppe Patroni Griffi) since 2010. They open their home, their table, for dinner guests, serving their traditional cuisine with a contemporary twist admist their artistic practices. Reviving a 16th century recipe from their home region, Veneto, “Pasta e Fagioli” paired here with squid ink bread, the artists mark the arrival of fall as a moment for harvesting ideas, concepts, coming togehter, opening discussion, and in this, Coming Home.”
