Santos, a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on merging art with sustainable food practices, has curated a menu themed on seasonality and local produce. The result is that Tender Touches offers a selection of savoury and sweet dishes that changes regularly throughout the six weeks of the exhibition. But the art is not limited to the food alone. Together with 11 other artists, Santos has created a dining space in which the crockery and cutlery is hand-sculpted, and both candlesticks and napkins have been designed by the artists to reflect textures of different body parts. Tuck into plates of jelly while pondering the hanging artwork that’s been made with corn, clay and fruit.
If that hasn’t fully satisfied your appetite, Tender Touches will be accompanied by a programme of tours, supper clubs, and workshops with the artists involved, allowing you to delve deeper in an already immersive exhibition.
