EMOTIONAL EATING / BAR FROM 7, EVENT STARTS 8PM / CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO BOOK
Taking influence from group therapy, neurogastronomy, rituals and relational aesthetics, Jesse Darling facilitates a two-night event exploring the ways in which food can trigger reactions both at a physiological and an emotional level. Participants will experience first-hand the chemical properties of particular ingredients and the psychological dynamics of cooking and consuming in a vividly interactive journey of catharsis and discovery, featuring butoh pizza, gift economies and a pop-up crying chamber.
There will be a vegetarian option.
Jesse Darling is an artist of various media working in London and beyond. Jesse Darling currently works in installation, performance, digital and video, but trained in physical theatre and worked as a cook for several years, in which time she founded a restaurant where the chefs worked naked, catered for the Trotskyists at the Fourth International, and served soup on the frontline at a riot. For This Is Not A Takeaway she will bring together aspects of what she sees as a continuous practice centered around embodiment, the principle of contingency and an ongoing exploration of what it means to be alive. Jesse Darling has performed, published and exhibited internationally.
