a passive house part i with artist Mary O’Leary at Rebel Reads Cork

Mary created a menu based on slowness and care, each element of the menu practices these in their creation; pickling, fermenting, brining and drying.

These practices allow for the food to passively transform into different tastes and experiences, slowly and at their own pace.

This was the first in a series of events stemming from a publication produced in 2020 entitled a passive house with artists Fiona Kelly, Dori O’Connell, Mary O’Leary and Lily O’Shea. This series was a continuation and sharing of the research produced in this publication and hosted in the DIY community space of Rebel Reads, Cork.

This series was funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
