Curated by Géraldine Longueville

Back in the XIVth century, the word “entremet” was used to define a dish served between courses during royal banquets: consuming animated sculptures and drawings turned the table into a stage. Entremet recipes allow us to recreate these dishes today. Instead of approaching it as a traditional re-enactment, the project The Entremet is more focused on the process of writing, exchange and interpretation of the recipe. Apart from it being the signature of a chef, the recipe recalls a past experience through the desire to pass it on to someone else. The recipe as archive, protocol and anticipation offers a model to think about the economy of an artwork, from its inception to its distribution.

The Entremet is the result of a process involving a dozen of participants since the end of 2010. Through a trip to Bahia, a residency at the Villa San Michele in Capri, discussions, performances, games, walks, books, dishes, sculptures and portraits, a common ground was formed between the participants. This experience took the shape of a box containing fourteen pieces to be used by future users as the ingredients of their own recipe.

The Entremet is presented during the exhibition “The Life of Forms” at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art les Abattoirs, Toulouse, France, on the invitation of Olivier Michelon.

-Residency at La Villa San Michele, Capri From February 2 to 12 2012.
- Exhibition "The Life of Forms" Opening Thursday 28 June, 2012, 18:00 Exhibition opened from June 29 to September 3, 2012
-Event The Entremet Thursday 5 July 2012, 18:00 – 23:30 For its first interpretation, The Entremet will be played by all its authors during a banquet. The content of the box will be set out several courses alternating dishes, sculptures, performances and talks. Only by reservation :

Latour and Networks

As Latour writes in Reassembling the Social, the term
…network does not designate a thing out there that would have roughly the shape of interconnected points, much like a telephone, a freeway, or a sewage ‘network’… It qualifies [rather] its objectivity, that is, the ability of each actor to make other actors do unexpected things. (129)

Enrique Moral Morris at KSM lab

Spanish artist and Vision Forum member Enrique Moral Morris shows new work at KSM lab at Norrköpings stadsmuseum June 19 - July 5. The private view is at 3pm on June 19.

Here are a few words where he reflects on the work:

A Reflection is what you see when you look into a mirror. What you see is an image, something that defines you. But what is it that defines a person and his/her identity? It could be a number on your identity card, but also the place or statue that you have in the society. It could also define the relation that we have with ourselves.

Identity is of huge relevance nowadays, yet nobody seems to think about it or define what it means. During my year in Sweden, I have been studying the different aspects of identity. The goal with this exhibition is to make the viewer think about his own identity and how is it shaped, but also be able to truly understand my own identity.

More info about Enrique and his work here and and article about the exhibition here (in swedish only).
