MEMORY PLATES is a curated memory re-enactment piece that is composed of expert/artist talks (and meals) stemming from the invited artists’ memory fragments of the presentations they have delivered (and the food they were served at the kitchen of Studio Olafur Eliasson) at the Institute für Raumexperimente (IFREX) between 2009-2014. The kitchen of Olafur Eliasson’s Studio has always been an important component of IFREX, it was simply the essence and the bonding element of IFREX to the Studio.

Within this frame, Memory Plates sums up the essence of Institute für Raumexperimente’s past, present and future of our memories in an innovative artistic manner through two magical and essential components: Experts (for knowledge/ co-creation) and food (for sharing/ communication). The series is a re-enactment of the past, in the present and to a future’s memories that will be constructed during the festival.

Within this respect, the project invites three experts to re-deliver the presentation they have made in the Institute between 2009-2014. Each expert is asked NOT to make any rehearsals, as the aim is to bring together the pieces of the memory together and construct a new memory while observing what has changed and which ideas mutated during the years.

Additionally, each expert will be asked to visit their memory of which food they were served at the Institute on the day of their visit. According to their memory the food will be served to the audience during the talk. If the ingredients of the dish that are forgotten by the experts, they will be replaced by a neutral placeholder, that represents the parts of missing memory on the plate.

** MEMORY PLATES will take place on 15, 16 and 17 September within the frame of Festival of Future Nows 2017.
