The Sounds Of Justice Are Music To My Mouth

Food Art Research Network and Liquid Architecture hosts a digital listening and eating event with invited guests as part of larger art-research project between RMIT, UNSW and partners. We consider the intersection of the politics of listening and the politics of food with provocations from artists Alana Hunt, Elia Nurvista, Keg de Souza and Stephen Loo. Curated by Madeleine Collie & Marnie Badham (Food Art Research Network). Documentation, sounds and instructions will be shared with the larger community for consumption after the event.

Over the four courses, each artist will share morsels from their creative practice to examine how eating and the mediation of the various modes of attention (tasting, smelling, seeing, feeling, hearing) are (and are not) available in a shared online experience, from our disconnected contexts of culture and place. This shared performative dining experience aims to connect bodies and geographies to notions of justice through complex and entangled social realities and ecological histories.

This is a special collaboration between Food Art Research Network, Liquid Architecture, CAST research at RMIT, and UNSW with provocations from artists Elia Nurvista, Keg de Souza, and Alana Hunt; curated by Madeleine Collie, Marnie Badham, and Stephen Loo; and presented by Liquid Architecture.

This project takes place online, and across multiple unceded Indigenous Lands. Liquid Architecture acknowledge the people of the Kulin Nations as the custodians of the lands on which we work. We pay our respects to indigenous Elders, past, present and emerging.
