Victuals explores our collective heritage and identity through food and drink.
To know a community is to know it's food an drink. In recent years, scientific analysis has focused on food and drink as an element of cultural heritage and memorialisation processes, acknowledging it as a crucial marker of identity - an expression of a place, its history, traditions, and its people. Through the works of art, we explore how these factors affect who we become, how we relate to each other, and how we are perceived by those outside of our conception of normality.
This group art exhibition takes the form of a pop-up coffee shop within the gallery space. Incorporating works of visual art, photographic installations, and interactive performances; merging the traditional heritage of food and drink with the practice of artistic expression.
