Have you ever thought of being part of an artwork you collect, and you even get to respond to it too?
“Collectors/participants are required to choose a picnic spot, partake in the food and drinks, and conduct a conversation as outlined in the instructional booklet.”
Still remember the creative yet down-to-earth food and drinks on Food #03’s menu when they were at Rowell Road, Singapore? I don’t know about you, but I am so very craving for them!
My favourites of my favourites are Post-Museum Pour, and Laksa Pesto Pasta. There are also the tempeh burger and Pu-er tea noodle soup. I also tasted my first bottle of red wine made from organic grapes at Food #03 almost a decade ago.
“Extreme Picnic includes a selection of well-loved food and drinks vegan items from the original Food #03 menu.
Food #03 was a deli-bar, social enterprise and a work of art by artist Woon Tien Wei. It was based in Post-Museum’s Rowell Road space from 2007-2011, and was managed and staffed by artists, activists, and an ex-professional wrestler turned chef. The daily gatherings at Food #03 defined Post-Museum’s community and became a space where people from different communities connect.”
What is Extreme Picnic and how to be a collector/participant of it?
“Extreme Picnic is a development from our interest in issues of community, space and land contestation. The project is a mash-up of Extreme Sports and picnics, and seeks to encourage people to reclaim and inaugurate recreational and free land for their own use.”
