Afternoon Tea-Live Art?
Afternoon Tea-Live Art? is a good question, but anything we place in or do in a gallery or museum make it a focal point of attention. To me Live Art is the inception of an idea through to the making of a public exhibition and its legacy, through the spontaneous and unpredictable interaction of living organisms, such as people and live elements of the natural world. This particular piece followed on from various other live art events I have held in open air urban green spaces, and also in gallery spaces where people have met together around a table to discuss certain topics and often to share food and drink. The focus of this one was the memories of eating or cooking food with others and the diversity of foods available in Sheffield.
