The FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.
A total of 10 interdisciplinary residents will be selected to join the upcoming FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY in its two modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı, this year, under the title of SILENCE WITH THE CONSENT OF SOUND, we will use the notion of silence in sound as a gateway to opening various sensory experiences. We will experiment towards transgressing the well-accustomed idea that silence as used as a “sound” component in sound art and music, which creates an aspect of empowering the work itself by making it stronger. Use of silence can accentuate the other frequencies, and at the same time sound might accentuate the silence further. Yet, silence in sound also creates a passage to other senses of the body. With silence, the journey with sound enables quick shifts and glitches from auditory senses to the enhanced senses of sight, touch, smell, and taste.
Composed of two intertwined modules, the program is open to application from all disciplines and all walks of life. The selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do NOTHING.
Ursula Block, Cevdet Erek, Brandon Labelle, Mario Asef and Ece Pazarbaşı.
