In this performance, alias cooking workshop, the artist argues that a disappointment need not always be an unfortunate event. It can also be a benchmark, a reference point in which one can place unconditional trust. With the help of Feiko Beckers’ imperfect instructions and impractical cooking implements, the audience is taught a number of cooking techniques that not only result in guaranteed failure, but also inedible meals.
Feiko Beckers lives and works in Brussels. Recent exhibitions include: instituten als De Appel, Amsterdam; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Beursschouwburg, Brussel (solo) ; basis, Frankfurt; NEST, Den Haag; Tenderpixel, Londen (solo); Museum Kranenburg, Bergen; Jeanine Hofland, Amsterdam (solo); STUK, Leuven; De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam and Theater Frascati, Amsterdam
