Come and taste a creation inspired by the Songlines exhibition
When art meets gastronomy : Night Fall / artgenève
Night-Fall Paris is an international event dedicated to the senses at the crossroads of the arts. Initiated by Thomas Hug, Director of artgenève as a result of its passion for contemporary art and gastronomy, the event offers a unique format of artistic encounters where contemporary art is invited to the table, outside of the artgenève and artmonte-carlo fairs.
An exhibition or work of art that inspires the creation and signing of a dish-work, offered à la carte for the duration of the festival.
On this year’s programme, the festival is inviting artists, chefs, galleries, museums, foundations and schools to think about plants and urban gardens, from contemplative to nourishing, gardens for kings and shared gardens. Urban nature and its colours, structures and forms.
Immersion in the heart of the Aboriginal world
As part of the new edition of the Paris 2023 Night-Fall event, chef Alexandre Semperé, Alain Ducasse’s ‘child’ of Naturalité, with all that this entails in terms of audacity and mastery of new culinary techniques, is in tune with the Songlines exhibition, presented at the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac. Set on the roof of the museum, the gastronomic restaurant opens onto a panoramic terrace and offers an exceptional view of the Eiffel Tower.
Alexandre Semperé's interpretation of the 'Songlines' taste
Chef Alexandre Semperé has found inspiration in one of Australia’s most vast epics through almost 200 pieces, created by over 100 artists, and some twenty immersive displays presented by the head of the musée du quai Branly’s Oceania collection, Ms Leclerc-Caffarel.
Based on this experience, the chef created the dish “Field tomato, squid ink anchoïade, fig tree leaf oil”.
A true celebration of the exhibition’s artworks and colours.
The dish is available from 24 June to 09 July 2023.
The Songlines exhibition closes on 02 July 2023.
