A project with Sonia Villar for “Gestos out of place”, an exhibition by La Escocesa at the Castell de Montjuic.

Curating and production
Clara Piazuelo and Alba Colomo / La Escocesa

January 20 to March 24, 2024, Castell de Montjuic, Barcelona

Clean, recycle, and adapt. Reorganize, move, and summon. Seize the opportunity, gather, and dance. Dispose, shift, and adjust. Come together and eat. Share and exchange food, leftovers, and gifts. And thus, the times of a mutating, self-reflective, and affectionate ecosystem are conjugated. Its dynamics, influence and surroundings pose constant and diverse challenges, involving collective self-care, meals where everything happens and is digested. We operate with what we have, and although it may sometimes seem precarious, these dynamics brewing and cultivating at La Escocesa make it an optimal, passionate and challenging creative stage.

This installation is an extension of the Mesa program, which took place at La Escocesa in 2023 and extends its fifth leg to Castell de Montjuïc. A scenography created with elements from La Escocesa to explore the ritual of shared meals as an artistic medium. An invitation to pay attention to our daily eating behavior; to our relationship with food and the experience of eating. A scenic and sensual ritual among diners, food, microorganisms and atmospheric conditions. An encounter for an expanded gastronomic experience as a way of situating oneself in a place. A fermented replica of aged utensils and microorganisms: material traces offered for collective, inter-specie, and multisensory digestion.
