Do you want to be part of the Khora Art for vegetables auction?
We are going to do an auction on Saturday 23 May to raise money for the Athens Food Collective: Covid-19 response.
We want to create 10 new original works of art which will be auctioned at the fundraising event. You (by yourself or with a team) are welcome to create one of the art works.
There will also be live performances related to each drawing so maybe you would be interested in doing that?
Each work of art must be a scene which happens before, during or after the story below.
Thanks to @K Zo - Benjamin M for showing me the importance of pigeons and cats.
The city is a desert, pigeons and cats share the ruins of an ancient civilization under the empty eyes of a humanity dazed by the murky mantle of an obscure power. The last vegetables on earth, a potato, an aubergine, a courgette and a tomato, shut up in a kitchen on the top of the hill and decide, as not to be eaten by pigeons that then will be eaten by cats (and once the vegetables have disappeared and after them the pigeons, also the cats will disappear), they decide to eat each other under the empty eyes of a humanity dazed by the murky mantle of an obscure power. For a series of obscure reasons, facts and coincidences that we call fate, the potato has the bitter destiny of being the first to be eaten by the others, that agree to not eat her alive, but to cook her properly.
On the gallows, before jumping in the pot, the potato has a striking illumination for escaping death: she will organise and represent vegetables in a meeting with the cats and the pigeons and will try and convince them of cruel absurdity of a nonsense food chain under the empty eyes of a humanity dazed by the murky mantle of an obscure power.
What do people think? Should we take part?
I like the idea of making music for this obscure piece, or parts of it…
