BACCHANALIA - art cuisine                                                                                       reference to the text 

 

... is an elaborated and divinely protected art product powered by POWERPROGRESSIVEART - Marija Srsen, Ana Gizdic, Zdenka Gizdic, and Elvira Smoje.

It was conceived and served during the Art Platform Salona in 2012, 2013 and 2014. Bacchanalia was formally presented at an exhibition Multiculturalism. It is the presentation and tasting of various antique Roman dishes (pasticada; honey, cheese, and pepper pones - libum; soldierly beans, garum, etc) served to the artist and tourists of Salona site. Bacchanalias were free of charge, new, fresh, artistic and touristic offer, an attempt to challenge the outworn, uninventive touristic offer of the tourist boards. The first Bacchanalia was a dare to people who live in places of abundant artistic, cultural and touristic possibilities yet do so little. Bacchanalias are devised according to the ancient Roman cookbook by Marcus Gavius Apicius De Re CoquinariaBacchanalias also have its distinct detachment. These altered art concepts are Art Cuisine concepts served mostly at the Art and Education Platform Narona.

The art product Bacchanalia was presented as a happening at the RITUS CELEBRANDI exhibition as well as on both platforms connected to the Roman Road project, the Art Platform Salona and the Art and Education Platform Narona and is definitely and profoundly powered by POWERPROGRESSIVEART.
