Oxygen Art Centre hosted artists Angela Glanzmann and Stephanie Yee as Artists-in-Residence from April 10th to the 23rd to create an installation for their exhibition entitled EAT IT UP!, which opened to the public on Wednesday, May 4.
Glanzmann (Toronto) and Yee (Halifax) invite viewers behind the scenes into the weird and obscure world of competitive cooking reality TV.
The exhibition explores cooking through an immersive and playful installation that expands on their own histories, ethnicities, and social positions.
Their installation takes place on the set of a fictional show EAT IT UP, complete with a presentation table, competitor’s kitchen stations, and pantry/food storage. Constructed out of common household supplies and cardboard, food sculptures speak to the culinary resourcefulness and resilience of their ancestors as they had to adapt to new cultures and customs.
Oxygen Art Centre is an artist-run centre located at #3-320 Vernon Street, Nelson, BC via alleyway entrance.
The exhibition will be open to the public Wednesdays to Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. Prior to your visit please review Oxygen’s COVID-19 prevention protocols on our website.
The exhibition, EAT IT UP! will be on view from Wednesday, May 4, 2022, until Saturday, May 28, 2022.
The public are invited to visit the exhibition during the run Wednesdays to Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. Admission is free.
