It is my way, my interpretation and only mine.
I set the scene, I create the theme, I portray the characters, I direct, and I tell the story. Simply to the fact that I need to! It is my passion, my freedom and my sanctuary.

“I FOUND THE VERY BEST SOUND SPECIALISTS TO WORK WITH AND TOGETHER WE MANIPULATED THE SENSES OF HEARING AND TASTING. “
Designed and customized Turntable, headset, 4 guests, 5 eatable batches: same taste 4 times · 4 tastes of Rain Forest · 1 portrait of a carrot · taste the tones in a dried seaweed leaf - a poetic story about an earthworm.
Take a seat at the table, put on the headphones and wait for the table to turn. Every time a miniature plate passes by, you grab it and when your lamp starts to blink, you eat. In this very second, the taste from your plate and the sound in your headphones unite. An eatable symphony appears.

“WITH A BOTH SENSOUS AND SOCIAL PLOT, THE INSTALLATION CHALLENGES KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, AND ABILITY, DEMANDING ATTENTION AND EMPATHY OF THE VIEWER CREATING A NEW UNEXCEPTED ENCOUNTER.”
Have you ever licked a plate? Have you ever touched a piece of art? Exaggeration promotes understanding.
80 sculptures created of ceramics and food, 100 people, curiosity, playfulness, up-close.
Look at the performer and see what they do and imitate. Don’t ask questions, learning by doing.
Explore, smell, feel, taste, sense, pill, scratch. It is messy, yet beautiful.

“WE CREATED THE FURNITURE OF MEAL, THAT MAKES IT EASY TO BE PRESENT DURING THE MEAL”.
The furniture in wood, 12 guests, 2 hosts living under the table, 12 pirogues with feelings, 1 carrot tartare. split into pieces, dessert for only half of the guests.
Open the drawer where the hostess has served a pirogue with a feeling. If you don’t think that the feeling fits you, you may trade it away. Each guest receives a personal drawer containing all the ingredients you need for the carrot tartare. Does it need more salt, is it strong enough, how many egg yolks do you need? Who takes control and who ensures that there is enough for everyone? Should you run into difficulties along the way, you may be assisted by the hostess…. If you behave.
If you didn’t get any dessert then maybe your neighbor is so kind to share the lavish, creamy, rich chocolate pie.
