FOOD: Bigger than the Plate
Sponsored by BaxterStorey
Join Honey & Co founders Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer for a 2-part live recording of their celebrated Honey & Co: The Food Talks podcast as part of a special mini-series to celebrate FOOD at the V&A.
Joining Itamar and Sarit for the event will be Fernando Laposse; followed by David Burns and Austin Young of Fallen Fruit.
Mexican-born, London-based designer Fernando Laposse uses a ‘waste’ material to celebrate the visual diversity of native heirloom Mexican corn varieties whilst revitalising sustainable farming methods in the village of Tonahuixtla. His project Totomoxtle, a collaboration with local farmers and an international seed bank, seeks to revitalise the biodiversity of corn varieties in the region, whilst producing beautiful designed objects and surfaces made from the corn husks, which would otherwise be discarded.
LA-based artists Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young) reimagine urban spaces and histories through fruit. Their wallpaper installations engage the history and symbolism of fruit in the development of city spaces and culture, while their fruit maps chart trees in urban space, encouraging us all to engage with food production through foraging and planting, and reimagine our cities as more generous and productive spaces.
There will be a 20-25 minute intermission, with drinks and Honey & Co designed canapés available.
