First room – Feijoada (Brazilian black bean and pork stew)
The diners enter a dark room.
Three pig heads hang on the opposite wall.
The diners may sit on sundry chairs around the room.
The pig heads seem to start singing; their movements are projected onto them through a video mapping technique
At the end of the song, some performers come in to invite the diners to eat feijoada.
It turns out that the pig heads are actually shaped from feijoada
The diners are invited to move into an adjoining room.
Second room – White feijoada
A long table is set in the darkened second room.
What looks like pork parts used in feijoada are laid out on the table.
They are identical to real pork parts, and the diners do not immediately notice they are not real.
They are pork snouts, feet, tails, sausages, bacon &c.
The lighting comes from red candles standing among the pork parts.
Some of them are made of foam and some are actually food.
The edible parts have different salty and sweet flavours.
Baloney mousse, white chocolate and bacon, white chocolate and orange, coconut mousse.
Third room – The contest
This room has only a screen and a projector.
Video footage is played showing a hog calling competition in the United States. At the same time, a live opera singer competes with the animal-like squeals, and the Pig Opera gastroperformance ends. Reality is served raw to the public, with a touch of obliqueness and delirium.
Pig noises can be heard in the rooms and performers wearing pig heads do the honours and offer the diners pieces of feijoada
Featured at a Food of War collective exhibition.
All rooms feature artwork created by the other artists from the Food of War collective.
