Tropical Kitchen - Parap and Rapid Creek Markets
ACCOMPLICE in 2017 commissioned Singaporean artist Jamie Lewis, our June artist in residence, to create a body of work under the annual program Tropical Kitchen.
Jamie creates and performs works using the making and eating of food as a catalyst for storytelling. Given Darwin’s love of eating together and enjoying a yarn, collaborating with Jamie was a match made in heaven. She created a series of workshops and community dinners, before developing a program of market tour lunches and indulgent dinners, as part of Darwin Festival. The work invited people to become lost in the stories the food conjured, while also significantly shifting the role of artist and audience, into collaborators.
