The solanum Tuberosum Banquet consist on a physical installation and a bilingual Potato Recipe Cookbook (printed and online formats). Areas of inquiry include a way of sharing during these times of isolation, personal space, the domestic space and the potato. The humble and historic potato opens the door for dialogue and reciprocity.
The Potato Recipe Cookbook, composed by the recipes collected on an Open Call, is the starting point of this artwork. The art installation represents the project in a physical dimension, consisting on a formal, round dining table containing full dinnerware, potato centrepiece and a circular floor base of soil. Each continent is represented by a recipe sourced during the project, which is printed in a ceramic plate.
