OPEN KITCHEN / in Da Gallery , New York City



Felipe Fernandez-Armesto在 一書中提到 「我吃,故我在,我們在餐桌上認識整個世界,盤中物透露了人類過去和現在的祕密,食物的故事不僅和烹飪有關,也與文化有關。」在藝術創作中,藝術家們選擇不同的物件傳達自身的感受或是對社會環境的觀察,而食物或是飲食行為不僅可以是全球性的共同語言 ,同時又具有個人私密性的像徵。在 exhibition, 藝術家透過與食物相關的主題所創造出來的作品,給予觀者高度共鳴,但是又透過食物說出屬於個人的私人故事。同時在 exhibition 中,更邀請到來自亞洲如台灣、中國、韓國、日本 ,越南,美國本土藝術家以及南美洲背景的創作者,以其不同的食物經驗表現在作品上,為這個展呈現出飲食發展下的多元文化。

展出藝術家為台灣的劉和讓、李依樺、紀紐約以及陳奕彰,Meredith Allen, SungHo Choi, Brad Darcy, Colette Fu, Hyoungsun Ha, Rex Hausmann, Tamara Kostianovsky, Elaine Tin Nyo, Trong G.Nguyen, Morgan O'Hara 以及 Michael Pribich.

In“Food: A History”, historian Felipe Fernandez-Armesto wrote “I eat therefore I am. People recognize the whole world through the dinner table, the food on the plate reveals the secret of human history. Food stories not only relate to culinary subjects but also connect to the culture.” Artists develop self consciousness, and expand their observation of the environment during art production. In the exhibition “Open Kitchen”, artists have chosen food and diet as the art subjects to create a common language between different races, as well as the personal link between individuals. “Open Kitchen” welcomes the viewer to share artists’ stories, and the opportunity through food to experience a multicultural view of the world. Fifteen artists from Asian, American, and Latin American backgrounds, present their experience of food and world cuisine.

"Open Kitchen" Exhibition will include the drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, video, mix-media, photography and performance from Meredith Allen, SungHo Choi, Yi-Chang Chen, Brad Darcy, Colette Fu, Hyoungsun Ha, Rex Hausmann, Tamara Kostianovsky, Ho-Jang Liu, I-Hua Lee, Elaine Tin Nyo, Trong G.Nguyen, Morgan O'Hara, Michael Pribich and New-York Chi.

"Open Kitchen" is curated by NuNu Hung.
