Martinka Bobrikova (Slovakia) and Oscar de Carmen (Spain) are a nomadic artist duo since 2005 and graduates from Malmö Art Academy, Sweden and the University of La Laguna, Spain. The duo explains,
“One of the long-term projects, we just started, is Kitchen Dialogues. This project focuses on visualization of the issues of excess intake through consuming food in a kitchen. Other aspects of the project will center on research of socialization in a kitchen, as well as through its ability to generate new social ecosystems. The goal is to present the project in the various spaces where food is eaten - like a kitchen, creating hybrid spaces that are based on the different shaft like a domestic kitchen found in a common household and industrial kitchen in a real restaurant.”
For the lecture at Open Forum Bobrikova and de Carmen decided to bring Kitchen Dialogues into Kunstnernes Hus and to initiate a discussion and present their practice through sharing a meal together.
Please join us at Kunstnernes Hus, Wergelandsvein 17, every Monday at 19.00. The program is free and runs in English. Open Forum is a student initiative conceived in 1999 and is supported by the Academy of Fine Art, Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
