Le blé européen en légère hausse,
le maïs reste stable
(”European wheat is slightly up, corn remains stable”) Performative dinner
with Cedric Mazet Zaccardelli
2019 at Galerie Sept Elzévir curated by Leslie Veisse Photo/video Rebekka Deubner
“Slight increase in the price of European wheat, corn remains stable" reflects on the economic tax and more largely on property; what we think is ours, and what we accept to share.
This performative dinner is an assessment of the impact of cutting in the service of a meal, and the economic qualification of the food. Its title is a reference to the Economic value of wheat and corn in November 2019.
Questions of division, growth, value and property come to life in the choice of ingredients, the cooking process and the service.
In the interest of profitability, the dinner has been produced twice identically.
