For Immediate Release: The Artist Sustainability Project Presents - The Red Herring

Coming Soon... Drawing attention to recession times the piece is called “The Red Herring: cé nest pas un a restaurant,” inspired by the Magritte painting, “This is not a pipe.” In a time when we are all talking about creating jobs, the work is a performative sculpture activated by the patrons, presented in a five-course restaurant style experience including video and live character actors.

The Red Herring takes us to the dinner table, a place that brings people together; an environment that can encourage some of the best creative solutions. As a visual artist who holds a deep love for food and cooking, I aim to alter the context of the restaurant experience through a visual free verse. By creating an opportunity to collaborate creatively with my community though both food and art I hope to reinvent modes of survival and shift perspectives about the current economic situation.

January 2010 the 1st month

As a visual artist who holds a deep love for food and cooking, I can’t help but to approach this business endeavor as a creative work in progress. While many artists are feeling like space invaders not able to find a good home for their work I want to draw attention to these recession times and how we are being pulled from our studios in order to make ends meet. Called “Cé nest pas un a restaurant,” the work is inspired by the Magritte painting, “This is not a pipe.” I will take something we all know and change the context in order to start a dialogue. Rather than calling it a job I choose to see it as a work of art. This artistic project that I have been calling The Hideaway is my effort to reinvent modes of survival and shift perspective about the current economic situation. Along with this comes opportunity to collaborate creatively with my community. The work starts as a food delivery service and will manifest into a sculpture of a restaurant.

Handmade clay pots will be made to deliver gifts of food and art to the patrons of The Hideaway. Evolving as time goes by, the first menu will offer a prix fix menu with a choice of Morg Fessanjan or Morg Tanoori. Inspired by my own family recipe, both are dishes that Iranian families share with their guests and take great pride in.
