The “Art of Eating - Rites and Traditions” is the latest exhibition at the Dapper Museum, a cultural space in Paris, France, that focuses on Africa, the Caribbean and "their diaspora".
Running until July 2015, the show takes viewers on a journey through the traditions as well as daily actions that govern the preparation and consumption of food, providing a contrast to the “sameness” of the global fast-food industry.
One can observe the links between specific objects, food preparation and the offerings made to “ancestors, deities and spirits”, for instance. These objects are made from an array of materials and come in different and fascinating forms, attesting to rich traditions and rituals.
