erde (kuchentafel)

Villa Renata, Basel
material: cutlery, plates, cake, text fragments about wheat and grain
duration: 30min

We read text fragments while we eat cake. Texts by investment bankers, the bible, stock market quotations, weather proverbs, and poetry. The table remains as we left it until the end of the exhibition in two months.

There are several medium format photographs on display as well, like a surrounding frame or line of thought around the table. They show images of agricultural areas, some depict traces of ancient farming activity, others of current landscapes.
