Rise – cooking up character
This, the definitive multicultural exhibition, brings together two universal themes of women’s material culture – cakes and textiles. Cooking and sewing have been the most portable symbolic markers of continuity after migration.
Eighteen participants baked their offering and told their story as the basis for Rise.
The exhibition design is quirky – eighteen offerings translated into non-edible works, are wall mounted and angled – Dali-esque – taking food from the customary horizontal plane to the semi-vertical.
