Art Unlimited 2017 | Subodh Gupta - Cooking the World

Subodh Gupta's installation cooking the world is a house completely made of used cooking pots that is accompanied by a cooking and eating performance, in which food will be prepared by the artist and consumed by the viewer.
The artist bought all of the pots from families in India, who used to cook with them, and each of them has its individual history.
Cooking the world is a work on the rituals and symbolism of food consumption which makes us think about the importance and symbolic meaning of sharing a meal together.
We think this work is now more important than ever with the insane waste of food in the first world countries and terrible famines in third world countries.
