As a part of this summer's The Other Art Fair, The Gramounce will be running a quirky four-day supper club event critiquing millennials and capitalism as a whole.
Supper clubs are so hot right now. In London, an emerging group of performers and chefs are blurring the lines between food and art. Nora Silva is one of these people who manages to master both art forms through her company The Gramounce.
And she is bringing it all together in her new event You Used to Call Me on my Cellphone – a dinner where all the dishes respond to the theme of millennial capitalism. Here, the dinner is a gallery, the gallery is a menu and the exhibition is a supper club. It’s perhaps a little confusing but you’re meant to be challenged here. It is art after all.
It’s running as a part of The Other Art Fair – the UK’s leading artist fair where people can discover and buy art directly from the very best emerging artistic talent. It is made for creatives who are looking to forge ahead with different art forms, not usually seen in the mainstream.
You Used to Call Me on my Cellphone is just that. Silva will be performing an inventive vegan tasting menu for four nights. Yes, that’s right, performing. Everything you see, hear, taste and feel is a part of the show which probes and deconstructs capitalism and how millennials have created their own world within it.
The tasting menu kicks off with the penultimate influencer’s favourite meal. That is, Kylie Jenner’s matcha latte and cream cheese bagel. Next up is a still life main (not to be confused with life drawing. We don’t think you’ll be eating off nude models) and you’ll also be tucking into one of the most Googled recipes – pecan pie.
Amongst all of this will be a handful of live performances by Silva herself and other members of The Gramounce team while the entire space will be full of other artworks too. It’s all hands on deck at this supper club.
It’s immersive, delicious and a whole lot of fun. Because, what silly sod said you can’t play with your food anyway?
You Used to Call Me on my Cellphone runs from 4-7 July at Handyside Canopy. Tickets can be purchased from thegramounce.com/tickets
