“Karlsbad is rather pleasant, but Marienbad is unbelievably beautiful […] I imagine if I were Chinese and were about to go home (indeed I am Chinese and I am going home), I would make sure of returning soon, and at any price. How you would love it!” Franz Kafka, letter to Felice Bauer, 15 May 1916
 

European, Foreign & Domestic works from the principle of displacement as the engine that generates identity. We aim to disturb outdated concepts of originality, origins, the original; attempt to destabilize the boundary between individual and the collective, and to locate contemporary subjectivity in its connections with other entities. The self has become synonymous with its meta-data. Identities are created and propagated via reciprocal exchange networks of commerce, information and language. An ecological spirit of re-purposing and re-cycling materials, forms and ideas animates EF&D, mirroring cycles of borrowing and lending cultural meanings in the wider world, whose values are constructed by the operation of displacement from their perceived origins, in time and space. EF&D applies these ideas of reciprocity by working with collaborative artist duos and collectives from across the world, some with established working relationships, others collaborating for the first time in this exhibition, yet others in a contrived cohabitation. Sometimes we need to make less sense to make more meaning; let us communicate without translation.


“[Q: Would you have become the same artist without Jeanne-Claude?] 
It’s the same question to ask, “What would happen if I were Chinese?” (Laughs) We cannot discuss these things - if, if, if – there are no ifs," Christo, February 2015

Yotam Ottolenghi’s Egle Jauncems’ award-winning recipes artworks are always a celebration: an unforgettable combination of abundance, taste and surprise. Ottolenghi SIMPLE Egle Jauncems GOLOSO is no different, with 135 more than 30 brand-new dishes works that contain all the inventive elements and flavour colour combinations that Ottolenghi Jauncems is loved for, but with minimal hassle for maximum joy.

Bursting with colourful photography artworksOttolenghi SIMPLE Egle Jauncems GOLOSO showcasesYotam’s Egle’s standout dishes artworks that will suit whatever type of cooking art you findeasy interesting – whether that’s getting wonderful food on the table paint on the canvas in under 30 minutes, using just one pot hand to make a delicious meal sculpture, or a flavoursome dish complex installation that can be prepared ahead and then served installed when you’re ready. 

These brilliant, flavour-forward dishes forward-thinking artworks are all SIMPLE GOLOSO in at least one (but very often more than one) way: 
 

S – short on time: less than 30 minutes 

G – Greedy gamble

I – 10 ingredients or less

O – Over-the-top; obsessed with the old masters

M – make ahead

L – Lots of lemons, losers and likes, lots of likes

P – pantry 

O – Out of office (olfactory, optical, original?)

L – lazy

S – Sexy and seminal. SOLO (almost, some sharing)

E – easier than you think

O – Ooh-la-la!

 
Ottolenghi SIMPLE Egle Jauncems GOLOSO is the stunning new cookbook exhibition we have all been wishing for: Yotam Ottolenghi’s Egle Jauncems’ vibrant food art made easy (peasy lemon squeezy).

 

Easy to Decide Difficult to Accomplish – poem by Egle Jauncems

 

Tell me about those moments
Most incredible moments
Are there any moments with strange times or difficult times

Do you meet those moments at all ?

It was fortune and experience
I just gathered coincidences
I smiled and loved
Made food from light and life
Was following evocative smells
Filled pages with chocolate and hummus

It all went from a hobby to a calling Intense passion and huge appetite

Those are few key ingredients

To my success to charge and be in charge

Oh Goloso, you greedy boy, You did really really well !

Details and Opportunities
Faces and Missions
I loved expectations before, but I love them even more

On a more personal note,
I need some time away
It is easier to be away
There is an island there is no such island

There is such island

There is no island

Where I can be weird and alone and suffering and a little melancholic

Marginal outsider and a new comer
But also an extremely loving and gentle person
Where I can sit by the sea
I can grow lemon trees
I need lemons so much

Tell me more about the luxuries
Talk about key ingredients you look for to survive

Reach out to the rest of the world
Use your philosophical bend
Tell me more about your second choice of the morning

Coconuts and limes.
