Description:
in 2015 I restaged Rikrit Tiravanija's famous utopian project of cooking for gallery guests, but with the twist that I used fish harvested from New Yorks East River, one of the most polluted bodies of water in America. I would like to again, prepare a large meal for gallery guests, but with fish harvested from a similarly polluted body of water in Poland. I will also make a display about water pollution, incorporating my art brut influenced paintings.
