Staffordshire St presents Fleshy Feast, a pop-up culinary installation by Natalia Janula & Joanna Wierzbicka exploring edible matter inspired by the Eastern European aspic and jelly. Fleshy Feast explores the relationship between food and consumers, the acts and sounds of chewing, digesting, food portions and molecules circulating between bodies and species. The installation will invite the audience for a unique dining experience rolling around on catering trolleys and cocktail tables.
The event takes inspiration from Regional Eastern European aspic, visitors will be invited to jelly making workshops, culminating in a feast with participants, where food stories are born, and re-enacted. The 4 day event will dive into the poetics of eating, their rituals, and social narratives. The installation will host a variety of guests for the sound performance, spoken word /amsr events and a workshop.
