in 2017 we offer you again the opportunity to become in a very playfull way ridiculously well-informed about a star ingredient during one “lazy” afternoon.

  • all your senses
  • 1 star ingredient

oct 10 – dec 12, 2016: eat’inspiration the beauty of imperfection and more …

flyer-the-beauty-of-imperfection

in many of today’s western design, fashion, food and architecture you can discover the characteristics of japanese aesthetics and the japanese world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection (wabi-sabi).

also various japanese arts have been influenced by the acceptance and comtemplation of imperfection, constant flux and impermanence of all things. for example the appraisal of the beauty of imperfection can be found in the principles of

  • ikebana (the art of flower arrangements), japanese garden architecture & the art of bonsai (tray gardens), japanese pottery (raku) and the art of repairing pottery with gold (kintsugi),  the japanese tea ceremony, etc.

at an international level this is reflected in trends like imperfect design, diy, the revival of craftsmanship, and eco design. the eat’inspiration the beauty of imperfection and more …  is not about the japanese cuisine. it is a freestyle interpretation and exploration of the japanese way of thinking and the art of living.

de culinaire werkplaats opens a new venture: project space the storage room

colourful-black

a dream comes true: opening the storage room

we got the opportunity to expand the activities of studio de culinaire werkplaats with a new food adventure as the space adjacent to our studio became available rather unexpectedly.

so a long-cherished dream of ours comes true. already for a long time we were searching for a place where visitors could experience food like art, and preferably with all their senses.

therefore, we proudly present to you our latest food adventure:

the storage room; world’s 1st project space for sensorial food art + design.

a kick off with hurdles + try-outs.

during the first months our new space was open to the visitors and guests of de culinaire werkplaats. they could try-out several food art installations and food ideas inspired by theme black.

after the usual red tape and other hurdles we are happy to annouce that from november 016 you can visit the storage room for playful, sensorial, and sometimes participatory exhibitions and/or performances at the intersection of food, art and design.

so … at the storage room you do not have to keep your hands in your pockets or on your back all the time. you wil be invited to squeeze, sip, slurp, nibble, and …

shop.

due to a lack of space the shop section of studio de culinaire werkplaats was reduced to a minimum. the new space of the storage room offers us some shop space as well. so soon our limited edition eat.collections will be in the shelves back again.

the 1st exhibition beyond black.

we kick-off with the exhibition beyond black, as this was the 1st theme we introduced ourselves to the public in 2008.

practical details.

  • opening hours of the storage room.
    • thu-fri-sat-sun: 1 pm – 6 pm
    • outside opening hours:
      • by appointment for groups: min. 5 persons
  • donation
    • we ask for a financial donation because
      • visitors can not only visit and see the exhibition,
      • they experience part of the exhibition by tasting, sniffing, slurping, etc …  which implies that part of the exhibition is consumed literally.
    • the height of the admission fee depends on the type of the exhibition and/or performance.
    • students will get a discount upon presentation of their student id card. the discount varies per exhibition/performance
  • gallery hire
    • you can rent the project space for small private gatherings like private dinners or cocktail parties, etc. also in combination with studio de culinaire werkplaats (venues are connected).
    • enquire for the possibilities: +31 (0)6 39 76 9955 (marjolein) .

flyer eatinspiration dutch masters

triggered by the arrival of the pendant portraits of maerten soolmans and oopjen coppit painted by the famous dutch golden age painter rembrandt van rijn at the rijksmuseum, we decided to take ‘dutch masters’ as inspirational source for this eat’inspiration.

we have explored the following 8 different dutch master talents for you in order to find the keys to excellence:

  • viktor & rolf (fashion artists), marcel wanders (product/interior design), rembrandt van rijn (painter, etcher), rem koolhaas (architect, urbanist), maarten baas (conceptual designer), karel appel (painter, sculptor, poet), aage m. (master safecracker) and last but not least geert jan jansen (master art forger).

you can experience a regularly changing selection of the fore-mentioned dutch masters.
