Erwin Wurm Food Age. Food as Influencer
An everyday and ephemeral element, food is, paradoxically, the object we mostly deal with throughout our existence. With the exhibition Food Age. Food as Influencer, Martí Guixé and Inga Knölke bring it onto the stage and, through a subliminal reading, they offer it to the public from an entirely new point of view.
By stripping food of its edible nature and transforming it - through art, craft and design - into an object of public and museum representation, the curators question our points of reference and invite us to look at what has suddenly become a complex and multifaceted object, through a different perspective.
For Guixé and Knölke, food is not just the product of purely nutritional or experiential functions, but also an important relational and thought-provoking model: a ubiquitous influencer that can actively reshape the present, thus becoming, for our future, a yet unknown but nevertheless unescapable field of design experimentation.
