Food Art: Rotating Kitchen by Zeger Reyers

View all 11 Photos

If you’re a fan of a tidy kitchen, you may want to avert your eyes from this one! Artist Zeger Reyers’s latest bit of performance art, “Rotating Kitchen” takes the kitchen mess to a new level. (The name itself might already cause panic.) A performer starts preparing a meal for the spectator guests, but takes a brief exit – though perhaps a second too long. The kitchen stage with food half-prepped, mise en place out in the open, and dishwasher running, then begins its ominous rotation. Terrible mashes of food and ingredients plaster the walls, and destruction to short-lived order ensues. A comment on decay and disorder, the entire act seems to happen in inevitable slow-motion, leaving behind an unrecognizable pile of leftovers: unrealized food, now trash.
