Pair this talk with potstickers and cocktail

Conceptual artist, writer and cook Elaine Tin Nyo invites you for a virtual visit to a rustic french cooking school (The Kitchen at Camont) to chat about our complex relationship with our non-human relatives: pets, domestic livestock, zoo animals and wild animals. How do they define us? Why are some so cute? Why are some so delicious? 

Elaine Tin Nyo is a conceptual artist with a kitchen and a studio in the southwest of France who employs food as a vehicle to explore issues of mortality and responsibility. Using performance, video, photography, cooking and writing, she reframes the everyday rituals of food and its preparation so we may reflect on the inherent beauty and value of the seemingly mundane moments of our lives. Her photographs, food, videos, installations, and performances have been presented at MoMA, Victoria & Albert Museum, New Museum, Brooklyn Museum, and Bronx Museum. Tin Nyo has received project support from Creative Capital Foundation, The Phillips Collection, and Seoksu Art Project, among others. In addition to her visual arts background, she has learned at the side of home cooks and restaurant chefs on three continents.
