Performance/Dinner: Mirna Bamieh "The tongue tracing the hand tracing the earth"


@ Amy Pekal @ Amy Pekal

The tongue will trace the taste of dishes weaved along stories of a kitchen that is “dispossessed”; the hands will trace the handprints on stoneware ceramic designed to host, add and interact. The tongue tracing the hand tracing the earth takes the guests to an experiential dinner setting that will be sensorial on multiple levels, from auditory to textural to gastronomic.

Alongside large-scale dinner performances with the "Palestine Hosting Society" project, which Mirna Bamieh founded in 2018 and researches into lost recipes and food practices in Palestine, she has been developing smaller, more focused dinner experiences that weave together eating/interacting/sharing/storytelling and histories of dishes with pottery design, which she will present in Vienna for the first time. Her work has been featured on many platforms, such as Aj+, BBC, Hyperallergic, MoMA Ps1, ArteEast, Conde Nast Traveller, Chronogram, El Comodista, al Ahram and Yale Theater magazine.
