Roo Dhissou: Courses for Dis-Course(s), 2023

Curated by Sharples.

Dhissou conjured up space for dining, eating, cooking and gathering. The project included a series of exhibitions and dining events for British South Asian artists. The exhibition explored who gets a seat at the table, the politics of orthodoxies, the art space, the home, the kitchen and the gallery by presenting a new body of sculptural, functional and architectural works that employ a variety of British Asian visual languages, culinary traditions and materiality. Langar Thalis inlaid with gut health tips, Cha stations, posh tea sets, Manjis, Rugs, Yoga Mats, seed charts, tablecloths embroidered with political and theoretical texts. Questioning how hosting through conviviality, cooking, eating together and conversation can create complex spaces for complaint, lament, bonding, stickiness, nuance, and the opportunity to be both comfortable and discomforted in our differences, similarities and oppositions. Courses for Dis-Course(s) was a partnership led by artist Roo Dhissou, GLOAM (Sheffield) and Primary (Nottingham), as part of Primary’s Nourishment programme, a long-term project that delves into food justice, nourishment, growing and sustainable food systems. With thanks to: 5tara, Kavitha Balasingham, Miranda Corral, Modern Clay, Fred Hubble, Tom Harris, Rebecca Beinart, Jade Foster, Colette Griffin. This project was supported by Arts Council England.
