Battery 2

Morning.

Even though I didn’t go on total hunger. I feel the effects of eating the restrict amounts very much. I basically dream with food every night, but food is always a bit monstrous and out of proportion in the dreams. Last night I dreamed I was eating myself, my fingers, the corners of it, big pieces… then I got scared and decided to hide the pieces I haven’t eaten yet. Continue reading “28.12.2013”

The End of Personality.r – workshop by Various ArtistsThe End of Personality
“I am a female, I live alone. I just finished a training and work as an assistant marketeer in a middle-shark company. I have a relationship with a man who might not love me. I love my mother. I eat fruits and chicken, no bread or vegetables and my lover takes me out to restaurants. I donʼt have time to cook much. I have a bit of an eating disorder. I just bought a Nintendo DS so my boyfriend stays with me and it also helps to calm my lonely hours. I throw my old pictures away. I was too fat. I will be beautiful again.” (Personality.f)

Anorexic Dinner n°1 hosted by Rares Craiut – 20/12/2013

INVITATION16. flow for 12 participants
What is an anorexic dinner?
An anorexic dinner is a ceremony for everyone. This ceremony is held to honor what food does in our lives. Texts are read, food is examined and tested and even requests are made.
The main goal of the ceremony is to create a recipe for one: meant to feed one person and at the same time be a manifesto about how modern people can connect with edible nature and regain Life in food, both individually and collectively. Feeding here means making reparation, realignment, feeding the physical and the spiritual all together.
The Recipe in the end should offer a unique opportunity for people to practice their duties as a responsible eater: mindful in relation to self and low impact responsiveness in relation to the others and the planet.
Instructions will be made clear on the spot and we will follow the proceedings of the dinner together step by spent. Food will also be served and it is up to the guests to decide if, what and how much they want to eat.
What you need to bring to an anorexic dinner
·      A good mind
·      Cup of water
Do’s and Don’ts at an anorexic dinner

In the last years Bureau d’Espoir has been looking into different strategies to deal with the loss of control we experience in our relation to food. Global food industry, the implosion of the local food markets, health issues and ethical questions keep us occupied all the time. In response to this feeling of loss of control Bureau d’Espoir has developed Hunger artist and Anorexic strategies.

The anorexic dinners are an invitation to come and take part in the preparation and consummation of a dinner that tries to rethink the logics of our food consumption, and also make this an enjoyable experience.
