Presentation:

The Beauty Dinner

Neo Futurist Dinner 11 - With Marghertia Soldati, Krisztina Czika and Alice Marie Jeanne

27 Nov 2019
30 Nov 2019

The skin is our essential protective layer, but how much do we care for it? As a society, we rely on industrial creams that promise us miraculous results and seem to forget that the skin is an organ, and just like our bellies deserves something yummy and kind.

The Beauty Dinner will explore the link between skin and gastronomy with seven delicious face elixirs. Created to be applied onto your skin as well as be eaten as a meal. Participants will be encouraged to share dishes, conversations and physical interactions in our culinary beauty salon. Pamper yourself!

Tickets: Wednesday 27 | Thursday 28 | Friday 29 | Saturday 30

Margherita Soldati 

Margherita, a resident artist at Mediamatic, explores the relationship between objects and materials and our bodies and senses. She specifically focuses on how these relations impact human behavior. In a society that relies mainly visual observation, she wants to make people “see” with other senses. This has centered her research on the human being rather than the object, and makes her works intimate, personal and interactive.

Krisztina Czika 

Born and raised in Hungary, Krisztina moved to the Netherlands to finish her studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, where she would come to meet Alice and Margherita. During her studies, she started researching materials, a topic that stayed with her and would eventually become her main focus.

To Krisztina, materials have a social, environmental and political place in our society. She now researches materials’ properties to find new applications and broaden their reach.

Alice Herón

Alice is a multidisciplinary artist. Her work focuses on organic shapes invading spaces and daily life, questioning the way nature is used and consumed. From large scale sculptural works, performance, photography to ceramic product design, Alice Héron’s works are given various faces. She is currently focusing on food as a medium to explore human’s relation to what’s growing.
