After-Dinner Walk 2017

Whirring down the Capucijnenstraat, a commissioned essay for the Gut Feelings Exhibition Catalog (2017).

Curator Sarah Higgins had big, weird plans for the catalog accompanying her group exhibition, Gut Feelings. She invited a diverse group of contributors to reflect on—and meander from—the show’s thematic focus on the intimate and political relationships found between food and power. My contribution, Whirring down the Capucijnenstraat, materialized as fifteen footnotes that anchored themselves to other texts and design elements that ran throughout the entire publication, creating a slow, gestational, and unexpected space for embodied contemplation.
