On Tuesday August 6th, Vue Events welcome artist, Kirsha Kaechele, from Hobart’s acclaimed Mona for a special dinner to celebrate her new book and exhibition Eat the Problem.
Vue de monde Executive Chef, Hugh Allen, has created an exclusive menu to showcase Kirsha’s love of chaos and complexity. Featuring an array of dishes inspired by the theme behind her hugely popular feasts at Mona, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to combine both art and cuisine.
In her lifelong quest to turn flaws into features, Kirsha questions whether we should do something with our problems rather than bemoan them. In this case, the problem lies with species that invade and degrade our native ecologies.
Eat the Problem is in one sense a cookbook: a collection of recipes from world-renowned chefs, artists, writers and thinkers of all kinds. Each recipe revolves around an invasive species that has wreaked havoc on the native biosphere.
On the other hand, it’s 544 decadent pages of artwork, poetry, essays and interviews with the likes of James Turrell, Marina Abramović, Andoni Luis Aduriz of Mugaritz, Germaine Greer, Heston Blumenthal, Mike Parr, Pablo Picasso, Enrique Olvera of Pujol, Laurie Anderson, Tim Minchin and many more.
Tickets for this unmissable event will be held at Vue Events on Level 55 of the Rialto. Each ticket includes six courses and a wine match from Vue Group Head Sommelier, Carlos Simeos Santos. Eat the Problem is available for pre-purchase at the discounted cost of $245 with your ticket. Book here.
