Cooking Sections: CLIMAVORE

Tuesday, 23 May at 5:30pm

Orange Lodge, Barr’d Islands, Fogo Island

Please join us for a talk with Cooking Sections, artists-in-residence as part of the new Labrador Current Foodways residency about their long-term project, CLIMAVORE, initiated in 2015 and a central part of their ongoing research.

CLIMAVORE asks how do we eat as humans change climates?

CLIMAVORE recognises that new ‘seasons’ are emerging. The lines between spring, summer, autumn and winter are increasingly blurred, while periods of polluted oceans, soil exhaustion, subsidence, pandemics and droughts are becoming more prevalent.

CLIMAVORE collaborates with experts in ecology, marine biology, agronomy, nutrition, and engineering among others.

CLIMAVORE proposes an adaptive form of eating, shifting for instance to drought-resistant crops in a period of water scarcity or filter feeders during times of polluted waters by fish farms.

Cooking Sections examines the systems that organise the world through food. Using site-responsive installation, performance and video, they explore the overlapping boundaries between art, architecture, ecology and geopolitics. Established in London in 2013 by Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, their practice uses food as a lens and a tool to observe landscapes in transformation.

We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
