Artist Kitchen Salon Zine
83 pages, edition of 200, 210 x 150 mm, softback
The Artist Kitchen Salon Zine documents a series of Artist Kitchen Salons which were part of iniva’s recent Research Network programme ‘If Sea is History? – What is Nation?’ This programme reflected on the sea as an archive that connects the body and memory and this publication reflects on the ongoing research of Research Associates’ Safiya Robinson, Holly Graham, Shenece Oretha and Beatrix Pang. It seeks to answer: What is conjured in our memory through food, in gathering together over an evening meal?
This A5 bound zine functions as part cookbook (to be used in your kitchen) and part memoir of notes and reflections to be used as a source of inspiration on nationhood and identity. Alongside contributions from the Research Associates, it also includes a written foreword by Tavian Hunter and Maggie Matić, quotes, archival material, reading lists and recipes from each Artist Kitchen Salon that took place at Studio Voltaire from September 2022 until March 2023.
