Staffordshire St presents DIG IN, a collaborative project that celebrates food growing and eating by artists Maisie Maris and Laura Mallows and curator Mariana Lemos. Looking at ancient knowledge, folk tales and indigenous growing methods, the duo exhibition sets the table for a dinner celebrating the harvest.
This exhibition aims to foster deeper connections with the soil and celebrate traditions of seasonality and reciprocity. Maris and Mallow's sculptures consider how symbols are created, charged with meaning and circulated across times and cultures. ‘DIG IN’ provides a multi-dimensional exploration of sustainable practices, cycles, land, sisterhood, interspecies kinship and our connection to the food we eat.
Dinner will be served on Maisie Maris' sculpture on Saturday 28 October cooked by Sam Riches (and friends) from the Woodmansterne School Kitchen with contributions such as readings and music from Anthony Baussy, Phoebe Coco, Tyler Eash, Dot Jia, Laura Plant and Melanie Schneider
