Picnic Poetico is a participatory event by Spanish artist Marta Fernández Calvo.
During the weeks prior to the festival, a number of poems were. These poems contained ingredients, recipes and and poetic images of food. Participants were invited to cook some of the recipes described in the poems. The recipes were be served in Custom’s Locavore garden and shared as the poems were read.
This multidisciplinary project draws on the relationship between artists and the kitchen to explore how popular knowledge and oral transmission can be experienced in live performance.
Marta Fernandez Calvo is currently working with Custom Food Lab’s Research programme as part of Speculative Landscapes
