Love Difference Pastries - The sweets
Gleless, by Gudran
Water - sugar - lemonade … And whatever you want to have.
The concept of pastries is connected to the relationship between pastries and childhood.
They make us happy, however how different the cultural background we have lived in is. As well, this happiness remains when we grow-up and eating sweets can therefore extend dialogue between us.
Our concept as artists is to use basic components of pastries of most cultures: sugar, water and lemon. That is in order to make a simple pastry that acquires its special flavor relying on materials available in the place it is made in. So, its flavor in Egypt will be different than in Italy, depending on the materials every culture likes to add. Moreover it is accepted and probable to mix flavors and create new ones.
This simple pastry can be made by everyone, starting with basic ingredients like water, sugar and lemon.
We also aim to make use of materials used by artists, chefs and other pastry-makers who will be present in the meeting.
We want to try with all participants to make a performance on a Sunday morning in one of the city parks, to get our ideas closer to the people and inhabitants of the city.
