“Building on the communal ethos and atemporality of Djuna O’Niell’s installation ‘The ground is kind, black butter’, food artist Barney Pau will be creating an edible installation and tasting menu with fermented and foraged goods.

A bespoke tablecloth is being produced for this event by Andia Coral Newton using local coastal materials as dying agents. The colours of Andia’s textiles are often determined by which colours she can make from local plants: the act of foraging and concocting dye baths for the yarn or cloth (scavenging) informs the overall design of the finished work.”
