A finalist in the Ephemeral Parliament – Visible Award 2019, initiated by Cittadellarte  – Fondazione Pistoletto in partnership with Fondazione Zegna and supported by Lafayette Anticipations, the Climavore project conceived by Cooking Sections, by the artists Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, poses the question ‘how to feed oneself in times of climate change?’ The London duo suggests a production and consumption system based on climatic risks and the changes they make to the landscape, and even more so, on food resources Climavore thus does away with the four seasons, proposing we adapt our infrastructure to the changes in climate instead. To survive, humanity will have to adopt a flexible diet! Cooking Sections has already landed on the shores of the Isle of Skye, in Scotland, setting up a facility that reacts to the different tides; also on the shores of the Dead Sea to explore desert-related food resources. Recipes with evocative names emerge from these experiences: Tidal Crispbread, Littoral Scones, Drought Salad… We are happy to support this project over the long term to rethink our taste buds!
