F.A.T/LAB Choreographed Culinary Performance
Don't miss out on an amazing opportunity to be part of a collaborative project with current Call For Entries artist, Alejandro Casazi! Casazi’s body of work comprises a diverse range of media (including printmaking, installation, sculpture, video, sound, photography, and works on paper) and may be described as an effort to understand the elemental experiences of human beings (breathing, heartbeat, taste, etc.). Often, the artist’s final product is achieved through collaboration with experts in fields outside the visual arts. F.A.T/LAB (Food, Art, and Technology) is a collective, made up of Alejandro Casazi (Visual Artist), Joel Chapman (Principal Chef), and Christopher Jette (Music Composer), that creates performative culinary experiences. Their work harmonizes sensory experiences (The Visual, The Sound, The Taste) in a carefully choreographed project that highlights the basic human activity of eating. Guests will engage in this “maximalist” dinner event, where an overstimulation of the senses will collide with every dish, taste, sound, and visual element. The installation, on view August 07 – October 03, 2010 as part of Call For Entries 2010, is a staging area for the dinner but also contains photographs, sound, and video projections to be included during the performance. Tickets to attend are $300/person and can be purchased through check or by phone 805-966-5373 x 105. Ticket price directly funds the artists' efforts. Please include your name, address, phone, email, and allergies to specific ingredients or intolerances in the mail or message with payment. Seating is very limited, so reserve your spot(s) and don't miss out! Visit: http://www.fatlabcollective.com/ to learn more about the collective and this one-of-a-kind project.
