Food & Art in la Pedrera
The well-known Gaudi’s building la Pedrera holds an exposition combining art and food – El arte de comer: La naturaleza muerta de Ferran Adrià
The food and gastronomy has always been a source of inspiration for many artists and this 130 works exposition is the best proof. The exposition is divided into four parts:
The first one shows the progress of the still life from the baroque period till the avant-garde.
The second one and the most surprising is the contemporary art. Visitors can discover here different works such as meat-made chair, a huge saucepan full of mussels or an interesting version of Manet’s breakfast on grass painting.
The third section is dedicated to three artist’s experiences that became restorer in the 70’ and 80′.
The fourth and last part has its own name: Ferran Adrià. His works are reproduced on photographies of Richard Hamilton or Hannah Collins, music from Bruno Mantovani or in a video about its participation in the Documenta Kassel 2007.
The responsible of the exposition declare that this is a following of the Bulli’s restaurant book Comida para pensar, pensar sobre el comer .
The exposition ends up with a sentence of the artist Peter Kubelka: “Cooking is the most ancient human being activity. When cooking, people express their worldview.”
