The DOMESTIC GODLESS

Visual Arts
 Monday, 23 July 2018 10:00 Place: Galway Arts Centre

16 July – 29 July

Lingering on the fringes of Ireland’s blossoming gastronomic renaissance, with an irreverent disregard for current fashions and culinary trends, The Domestic Godless research and explore the darkest corners of the world’s culinary cultures employing food as material for artistic experimentation and invention, creating recipes and installations that teeter on the edge of feasibility and believability.
 
Their mission is to examine the potential of food for creative expression, exploring its taste, its presentation, its history and its cultural values. Through recipes, installations and public presentations they exploit food as a concept and a medium through which to convey humour, empathy and other qualities that distinguish art from purely craft.
 
Preparations from a specially constructed custom-built kitchen will include taster-samples such as; the 14-allergen layer cake, a guide to post-industrial foraging and aperitifs designed to combat predatory sexual behaviour in intoxicated males. Performances include slide shows, menus, sculptures and a number of special guest appearances including sound artist Russell Hart and visual artist Molly Ann King.
