Inspired by the exquisite art of decadent food, students of Tomas Bata University in Zlin developed a concept that revolves around the process of nourishment. While most people consider it a social activity, eating could very well be perceived as quite the opposite: namely a moment of intimacy and pleasure. The exhibition is created in a specific way that recreates such a moment and instills the feeling of “receiving” nourishment in the viewer. This year’s concept also references to EXPO 2015’s slogan “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life” by emphasizing the actual process of feeding a person.
Utilizing modified cutlery to feed one another, participants have the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone through the act of feeding. The exhibition offers a selection of Czech kolaches and the world-renowned Bohemian pastries, which have served as the underlying inspiration for the Who first? exhibition.
