Hahnemanns Køkken is pleased to announce Chili Talk, a special food and photography event co-hosted by Copenhagen Photo Festival. On this occasion, chef Trine Hahnemann and artist Wei Weng will celebrate the cross-pollination of cultures and flavors by providing an experience based installation for viewers to look, taste and talk about the sensation of chili burn.
The artist will exhibit photographs from her book that conceptualizes the various stages of burn by chili capsaicin on human receptors and read passages from her artist book Eat A Chili, introducing the concept of cultural synesthesia as a driving force in her image-based work and speculative writing. With a compilation of images from China, Myanmar, Thailand, Australia, the United States, and Denmark, Eat A Chili feasts upon the ways in which image-making crosses culture and constructs meaning.
From farm to table, chef Hahnemann will orchestrate a small taste of chili inspired by Eat A Chili using fresh harvest from local supplier Stenbølsgaard farm (beer pairing included with ticket price). In addition to book signing, fresh chili plants from Gartneri Toftegaard and limited editions of prints will also be available for purchase during the event. This ticketed event will be in English. Covid testing is required.
Venue: Hahnemanns Køkken, Sankt Kjelds Plads 14, 2100 Ø
