Comfort is a feeling
We don’t only eat because we are hungry. Our emotions play a big part in the food choices we make. When we are happy or when we are celebrating something, we reach out for different food items than when we are bored or very sad. Food can enforce certain feelings. At the same time, food can also distract you from feelings you’d rather not feel.
Should food be capable of putting you at ease (mentally as well as physically)? What does truly comforting food feel like?
Exhibition with 8 installations that made people think about food, their relationship to it and its comforting qualities.
Showcased in September 2023 during Open Monumentendag within the beautiful setting of an old banquet hall in the middle of a hip beer hub in Mechelen (Belgium): Bier Central.
