HARP: A MEAL by Ximena Garnica + Shige Moriya
Ximena Garnica + Shige Moriya
In an intimate setting, a small group of attendees share in a communal journey traced by food. Part art installation, part ritual, part laboratory, and part dinner, this poem for the senses creates space for friends and strangers to prepare, serve, and eat together; while reflecting on our post-industrial relationship with food.
A Meal exists as social sculpture, performance event, and theatrical experience delicately framed by dancing bodies, crafted recipes, and mythological beings.
A Meal came out of the artist’s experience and desire to build a community. It’s about bringing people together through visceral rituals. With the state of divisiveness and partisanship currently rampant in the US, A Meal opens a space to create new relationships while questioning through art the structures and environmental challenges of food in the anthropocene.
