The Food Garden Canteen

“The Food Garden Canteen” explores the relationship between cooking and art, the importance of gardening, and the radical changes, that have taken place since the new coronavirus pandemic, in our daily practices and the way we create, share and enjoy our food.

The space of “The Food Garden Canteen” was designed as a luxury canteen in which all the protective measures  for the protection from covid-19 were undertaken.

The visitor enters the space in an unprecedented condition of restriction (use of mask etc) and under the guidance of the “staff” follows a path which aims to activate his senses and create a link between himself and the works of art themselves. Through the use of organic materials (edible or not), everyday objects and practices, the aim of the project “The Food Garden Canteen” is to question our perception of time, our relationship with the environment and our social contacts and the fine line between daily and artistic practices.

“The Food Garden Canteen” was presented as Christina’ s Spanou thesis work for the Master in Fine Arts program in the Athens School of Fine Arts, in September 2020.
