An ongoing project with Mette Saabye, Josefine R. Smith and Janne K. Hansen
The concept of a meal and how it has the ability to echo life around us forms the common foundation for the group’s reflections, and especially focuses on how a meal can bring people together and bolster their sense of community.
Making jewellery and preparing a meal both share an intense use of the senses, as both jewellery and a meal are made and used by the body. What remains after the meal is the memory of the act. With jewellery, the memory is stored and decoded by the senses, forming a connection between time and place.
A meal is prepared as a generous gift and sensory experience, to be enjoyed in comfortable togetherness, with room for close interaction and the exchanging of views across cultures.
