Production: Fur Alle Falle
We installed a real kitchen inside the gallery Kitsch International (Valencia-Spain).
A copy of the kitchen we had in our house.
For every weekend in two months we made a program with various events and activities.
The gallerist was part of the production team, providing contacts and ideas.
We invited people from various professions to make part of any activity, and to work collaboratively with others to develop the proposed events. That is, to share their knowledge and create something together.
Kitchen & Fashion
We invited two known fashion designers from Valencia, Isbel Messeguer & Javi Albiñana, to work together creating a collection with the idea “Kitsch kitchen.”
The models, of various ages, paraded up & down with their favorite food, inviting the public to eat.
