THE FIRST SUPPER
Caique Tizzi

STAGED DINNER

upon invitation from Zeller van Almsick during Curated by
04/09 — 05/09/2021, Vienna


Conceived by Brazilian artist Caique Tizzi, the work explores the cosmogonies of food and the potential performativity of a meal. Cosmogony stands for the origin—the creation of the gods and of the universe, the storytelling of how the world came into existence. Tizzi picked amongst the narratives of different founding myths related to the consumption of food and divided his dinner into four chapters and courses. Every course is accompanied by the reading of a text or a song, guiding the guests through an ever-changing present.
