Ballast Seed Boat Tour - Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe)

Wednesday 10 August 2016, 18:45 to 20:15

Artists Daniel Fernandez Pascual and Alon Schwabe lead a tour of the Floating garden and discuss how we use food as a tool through which to understand the world.

Their work straddles installation, performance, mapping and video in which the duo explore the intersections between visual arts, architecture and geo-politics.    They have looked at the Spanish real estate crisis through a paella cooking demonstration, explored the food network of colonial Britain through the politically charged historic recipe for Christmas pudding, and more recently explored Scotland’s invasive plant species by creating experimental ice cream flavours.

Meet at Arnolfini Box Office.

Seeds of Change: Floating Ballast Seed Garden brochure is available from Arnolfini.  

Located on Bristol’s historic harbour, just below Castle Park, the The Ballast Seed Garden was created by Maria Thereza Alves in June 2012. Constructed from a disused grain barge, the garden is populated with a variety of non-native plants, creating a living history of the city’s trade and maritime past.
