EAT ART = Food + Art

 

Ephemeral material and actions.


Ever-universal exploration of human relationships through the essential act of feeding.


Themes of consumption, production, absence, idea of... food.

 

The everyday and the common. Art is Life.


Artistically boundless mediums for exploration.


Reactionnary on past, contemporary and futures issues. 


Territory of aesthetics, sensuality and cognition in the process to be defined by art historians.
