Hortus Deliciarum

Edible installation Amuse-bouche

“Hortus Deliciarum” at Museum Tinguely in the context of the exhibition Amuse-bouche. The Taste of Art, Basel 2020

“Hortus Deliciarum”  is a reflection about the nature that surrounds us, through sensory experiences, focused mainly on the taste of nature, more specifically on the taste of flowers from Basel flora. Rethinking the use of flowers in food, considering their social, cultural, educational and anthropological aspects, but also their artistic and aesthetic potential.

“Hortus Deliciarum” proposes two different strategies: the construction of a greenhouse in public space in collaboration with Stadgärtnerei Basel. An installation inside the Tinguely museum – a symbolic space reminiscent of the domestic kitchen that is activated with edible performances.
