Boom in boom in, butter | Casey O’Connell and Sarah Rose
31 October – 28 November 2014
Taking cooking – its language, form and history – as a model for research and production, Casey O’Connell and Sarah Rose will host events using modes of instruction as a score: a recipe.
During the events, the static and visible score will be destabilised as it passes through the body of another person. Framed by medicinal and culinary practices, these events explore the impact and engagement with an instruction within our private and more intimate lives.
Boom in boom in, butter will variously include: two listening events; a meal that explores sensory experience and consumption; a screening of locally collected material; a local forage and a closing event co-hosted by Le Kevin Costner Bar.
Boom in boom in, butter takes place throughout Market Gallery’s three spaces, adjusting these environments according to the material and social conditions of each event. Physical traces of each event will be left in situ, considered as a form of indexical yet contingent documentation.
Boom in boom in, butter will record the events using a diaristic strategy. A publication co-produced with Market Gallery will be launched in 2015. O’Connell and Rose have invited contributions from peers who are interested in forms of self-care and collective action.
