FEAST

"I distinctly remember my friend making a blancmange

with the sole intention 

of smearing it all over a girl he was after. We took it 

with us on a picnic

to Hyde Park".

Alongside the traditional family dinner table, a meal is a place for discussion, debate and the sharing of ideas. FEAST looks to comment upon contemporary visual art and film works that explore our relationship with food as a social event, a marker of identity, a product of history and a commodity for trade. The publication will combine articles on contemporary arts practices with recipes, food histories and literary narratives in an eclectic mix that serves to explore, highlight and question the varied roles food holds within our everyday.  looks to highlight the connection between art and food, exploring food as a marker of ritual, welcome and event.
