Autobiographical Food from Invisible Flock on Vimeo.

Invisible Flock have invited artists to prepare dishes live from recipes based on personal stories in a Ready, Steady, Cook style set up with Terry O’Connor as master of ceremonies, during two hours of eating and sharing.

Jennifer and Sheila, Leo and Emma have been invited to prepare meals that they feel represents a story from their lives – it might be to do with their artistic practice or something else entirely. Invisible Flock will help cook these dishes live while Terry leads a discussion about autobiographical practice.

The event intends to open up a dialogue around how much of ourselves we put into our practice, when this tips the work/life balance and around care for ourselves in the industry. The event will result in sharing the prepared dishes with the audience.

The event is not suitable for children under 12 years old

She works across disciplines, currently focusing on writing, film, voice, and drawing. She has artists’ books in collections in Tate Britain, the V&A, and The Saison Poetry Library, and claims to make a good cake.

Leo Kay is a performer and Theatre Maker who’s work sits between theatre and live-art with a focus on autobiographical performance.
