KAI x RYCHÈL THÉRIN | Studio Dinner 

Saturday 25 May 2019

Manaakitanga. Whanaungatanga. Kaitiakitanga.

By sharing culture with hospitality, we create positive and meaningful relationships.

He aha te mea nui i te ao? He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata.

What is the most important thing in the world? It is the people, the people, the people.

(Māori proverb)

In 2018 I took part in the Open Studio weekend of Art Walk 18, a yearly arts festival in the 18th district of Vienna. For this, I set my studio up as a small gallery, with a retrospective of old and new work.

Once the weekend was over, I left the work up. I wanted to use the space for another artistic event. After some collective brainstorming, my sister and I decided to collaborate and host a Studio Dinner in the space, where all of the food served would be based on the artwork and my lines of research.
