PHILOSOPHY AND BRUNCH
ASTRID NOACKS ATELIER. COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, 2015
Towards the end of summer 2015 during Copenhagen Art week, we curated an event at Astrid Noacks Atelier. Set around the breakfast table, the event sought to promote discourse reflecting upon what was being eaten, and the process in which it came to be on the plate. Alongside brunch, we also created a space for reading, where people could browse various publications we gathered.
To accompany the event, which was attended by around 70 people, we created a handmade publication on a riso printer. This included several gleaned texts, recipe cards (including homemade anti-depressant schnapps) and an assortment of seeds for people to grow at home.
In the courtyard of Astrid Noacks Atelier at the beginning of summer, we fabricated a series of garden beds using a traditional Japanese wood preservation technique called Shou Sugi Ban. Some of the produce grown in the Shou Sugi Ban garden was harvested for the brunch.
