Sign of change

Earthly foods, active foods

Contemporary Art | In a context where cuisine and gastronomy are revealing themselves as part of contemporary creation and the inflation of exhibitions dedicated to the subject points to a generational interest, the book « Dinner with Jackson Pollock » , published by Assouline, reverses the trend.

When the artist starts cooking, with the help of his wife Lee Krasner : Dinner with Jackson Pollock is an intimate examination of his relationship with nature, ingredients, consistency, fluidity, assemblage and an obsession proper cooking time. What we come away with is a unique approach to food, earthly food, corporeal, active, regenerating, and assimilated. When Pollock and his wife shared a recipe, they integrated the way of presenting it : substance of forms and colors, exploding containers and contents’a reverse shot of the culture of gastronomy with its machinery and precision.
