Marina Abramović in Food Age. Food as Influencer

The National Gallery inaugurates the Food Age exhibition. Food as Influencer, curated by Martí Guixé and Inga Knölke. An everyday and ephemeral element, food is paradoxically the object we have to deal with the most during our existence. With the exhibition Food Age. Food as Influencer, Martí Guixé and Inga Knölke stage it and, through a subliminal reading , show it to the public from an unprecedented point of view. By depriving food of its edibility and transfiguring it – through art, craftsmanship and design – into the object of a public and museum representation, the curators question our points of reference and invite us to look, through a different perspective, thissuddenly complex and multifaceted object. For Guixé and Knölke food is in fact not only the product of exclusively nutritional or experiential functions but also an important relational and reflection model. A pervasive influencer who can actively reshape the present, thus becoming, for our future, an inescapable yet unknown field of design experimentation.
