A Kitchen of Her Own is a social art project to raise
awareness about everyday violence against women and girls. I also seek to answer questions about women’s relationship to the kitchen by using the kitchen as an investigative experimental
creative space. I will examine how diverse meanings and objects contained in the kitchen represent and contribute to questions about society, economics, ethics, personal mobility, identity and creative expression.
Food has been an important subject in art as long as humans existed. It is a way to communicate between people and a form of creative expression. Food can also be a performance- cooking, serving, eating and the rituals involved. Kitchen objects and utensils can reflect the power of tradition and evoke vivid memories in the mind of the narrator.
ARTIST ULI AIGNER CREates vessels that cover the entire range of a household’s eating utensils: mugs, cups, bowls, jugs, plates and accessories such as egg cups, strainers, teaspoons, etc. She WILL FULLY EQUIP AND EXHIBIT HER ONE MILLION PORCELAIN OBJECTS AT A KITCHEN OF HER OWN. ULI Aigner STATES, "POTTERY IS HIGHLY CONCENTRATED MATTER. THE CERTAINTY OF BEING ABLE TO MAKE A COMMODITY OUT OF A PIECE OF DAMP EARTH THAT ANYONE MAY NEED ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AT ANY TIME, CONNECTS US WITH THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT."
the collaboration between A Kitchen of Her Own and ONE MILLION is a highly interesting and relevant form of exchange between two female artists, continents, cultures, space/objects and positive artistic-activism in society.
