#2 Savouring — 500kr
November 22, 19:00—21:00
Number of seats: 5

An encounter with food and visual creation.

The combination of food and art can be a challenging and sometimes over-sophisticated and intimidating encounter, which often leaves no space for the genuine simple pleasure of experiencing something nice. This event is all about drawing this encounter back to an experience where taste – aesthetic and gustative – comes first, enhanced with the cosiness of being in the cook’s home.

A casual yet elaborate Japanese meal, inspired by the surrounding space and objects created by invited artists, will be shared among the guests along with traditional sake. The designed objects will be available for purchase giving the possibility to recreate the meal experience at home.

(The menu includes fish stock)

Season 1 Opening night: 18 October

Tomorrow sees the launch of our first season! We hope you haven’t missed that it will take place on:

Timmermansgatan 37, 5th floor between 17:30-22:00.

We will present the programme and talk to some of the involved artists. Learn more about the first season below!

What will happen during the first Season?

“The first season contains a programme of a photography exhibition, four different food events and one art exhibition between October 18—November 29. We’ve initiated this programme, because we wanted to highlight the fact that many artists and designers use their home as an exhibition or event space.”

Why have you chosen the home as a setting?

“When going to exhibitions in galleries and museums you see the piece and then leave. But there is so much more to experiencing art and design. By placing the object in a home, we think people will respond to it differently. We hope that the the experience is more intimate and that you as a viewer become part of the actual piece. The meeting with the artist/designer and other guests is also core to the experience.”

How will it differ from a normal exhibition?

“We hope that the feeling after leaving the exhibition will be what differs the most. We want to create an experience that stays with you. By placing the experience in a home, we also hope to foster conversation around the piece, or the experience itself. It will be much more comfortable! “

Explain what Experience Design is?

“We believe it’s possible to design the connection and experience between people, to a certain extent, and to construct influential and beneficial social platforms where new experiential stories can be produced. This can trigger innovative ways of interacting and communicating with people, hopefully leading to a greater understanding between people from different cultures and backgrounds.

The different ways people engage and interact with the events in the home are to a certain degree unpredictable and this result is the most interesting; seeing how individuals change and/or adapt to it and how that leads the project in new directions.”
