All of a sudden Wild Kitchen is part of the EVA International. It is Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art. Every two years EVA International works with guest curators to create a 12-week programme of exhibitions and events that engage with the people and city of Limerick, Ireland. Since its foundation in 1977, EVA International (formerly e v+ a) has worked with some of the world’s leading artists and curators, bringing outstanding exhibitions to audiences on the west coast of Ireland. Artists’ projects will be selected through an international open call for proposals and exhibitions take place in both gallery and non-gallery spaces.
I was approached by the artist Seamus Nolan in February with his idea for Eva, and we came to the final arrangement later on,with the culmination of what he called the Tarzan Training Camp. Off to Limerick on the 6th.April, for my urban foraging event which involved a wild food walk in the peoples park in Perry Square and then a beautiful lunch to share I had prepared with wild food, in a room in the Limerick City Gallery of Art, overlooking the park.
The photographs and voice recording can be seen and heard for the duration of the exhibition in the reused building that is the:
