Manet’s Déjeuner sur L’Herbe: A sustainable breakfast

BY CHRISTIANE STEFFENS
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 23, 2015

Inspired by a pivotal work in French painting, Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbeChristiane Steffens embarked on an artistic inquiry into sustainability challenges. The result will amaze you.

Christiane's presentation is about an artistic inquiry into sustainability challenges. Her project is a sustainable reenactment of the tableau as depicted in Édouard Manet’s Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe, a pivotal work in French painting. The imagery is well-known and caused a scandal when first exhibited. The painting features a nude woman lunching with two wholly dressed men – a contrast unseen. She stares directly at the viewer, which was considered to be another provocation. The men are dressed as dandies. The women is sitting on her clothes. Next to these clothes we see a bread and a fruit basket, as in a still life. To Émile Zola, Manet’s Déjeuner is his greatest work, one in which he succeeds to place figures of natural grandeur in a landscape.

Christiane shows the display of a patchwork quilt of reused pieces of cloth. This quilt has the same measures of the original Manet canvas (208 by 264.5 centimeters). The linen patches embrace the same color spectrum as the Déjeuner. Each patch has one of the dominant colors of Manet’s painting, and the ensemble of patches reflects the color impression the painting makes on the spectator, with green, blue and black overtones. In that respect, the quilt has a pixel-like quality. Who has seen the Déjeuner will recognize it instantly.

The quilt is a creative example of sustainability – not only sustainability in the sense of reused cloth, but also sustainability of ideas and motives as they are expressed in major works of art. Manet’s masterpiece itself echoed existing pictorial patterns – as the theme of the pick-nick was to be abundantly found in older gravures.

The quilt may serve as a lieu d’innovation – a place where people can sit together – either on the quilt or around it – to exchange views, ideas, and stories. The quilt can also be ‘visited’, or ‘occupied’, by individuals allowing them for meditation and prayer possibly offering  inspiration.

Cake Made Me Do It

BY FLORENCE YAPP
@ VOL 10 ON APR 01, 2017

"When I saw a recipe for cake that says use 4 eggs, I just use three because I had an egg for breakfast."

Cakes are sweet. Cakes are sour. Cakes are fluffy. Cakes are heavy. No matter how hard you try, just like a cake with all the science behind it, people will judge you and that is what Florence Yapp learned about life.

Hills Breakfast x PechaKucha

On top of the regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, we do also support independent one-off PechaKucha events -- you can see some of them listed here -- and in this post we include a few photos from this week's "Hills Breakfast x PechaKucha." It was held at Tokyo's Roppongi Hills complex and hosted by none other than PK co-founder Mark Dytham. Considering that it had a start time of 7:30am, we're pretty impressed that it had a turnout of over 150!

PechaKucha Night Iloilo Volume 1: Pucha! Kucho-Kucho!

  The first PechaKucha Night in Iloilo City is happening tonight at Brew Burgers and Cafe featuring 6 presentations, selector music, and spoken poetry performances! We are all excited for tonight. The presenters and the performers have prepared their asses off to deliver one pretty awesome event. Our featured speakers for the night include: Harren Fegarido, a staff writer for Project Iloilo, a blog-podcast project that aims to document and spread Iloilo culture - tell stories about Iloilo and its magic to those who live and have passed through the city. He was born and raised in Iloilo City but has been away from the city for more than 3 years. He wants to live a monastic life when he reaches 60. Ayn Bedonia, a practicing OB-Gyne in the city, is an advocate of safe sex and female sexuality. She is committed to empower women to embrace and enjoy their sexuality while being responsible doing it. She loves the beach and she loves wine and she has the luxury to enjoy both in Iloilo City that's why she can never imagine another home. Johann Bolaño, a part of Aftersyx, a collective based in Iloilo that aims to push the boundaries of self-expression through music. He has been one of the influencers of Iloilo subcultures since the early days. He believes that we, as Ilonggos have roles to play (in terms of music and the arts) in shaping Iloilo into a more legitimate cultural hub. Myka Perlas, the girl behind Live by Healthy Kitchen, the first health restaurant/health food store in Iloilo City that started out as a calorie-counted online delivery food service. She is an advocate of healthy living by healthy eating and is committed to spread the health-conscious culture in the city. Her passion to contribute positively to the Iloilo community is amazing. Clem Tan, the token urban gardener in his circles. He has been growing food in his garden for years. He has expanded his growing projects in friends' houses, in empty community lots, and in vacant spaces at work. He is passionate about growing food in home gardens (even work gardens now apparently). Growing kitchen gardens is a culture he wants to spread in Iloilo through his upcoming project, Herbs in Pots. His goal is to equip people with start-up food garden kits. Poona Pas, the girl behind White Thoughts, a self-published book of fragmented thoughts from her journey through depression. She is an advocate for mental health awareness and loves educating people on the biological underpinnings of mental disorders. She is also a believer that music and the arts and a creative life are tremendous weapons in combatting mental disorders. She believes that the creative scene in Iloilo can be nurtured to support the rising prevalence of depression in the city. We also look forward to the spoken poetry performances of our three poets tonight: T.M. Garcia is a writer and a musician. She writes music and sings for a punk band based in New Jersey called A Hopeless Mess. She loves unicorns and devours souls for breakfast. Mica Cruz is a freelance food photographer and graphic artist who spends her free time baking and getting baked. Kristine Buenavista is a published writer who likes to tell stories and  to be told of the daily magic that occurs in others’ lives. She drinks leaf tea whenever she takes breaks from being perky. We have Nervegasm playing the whole night and we have Garry Balcoba with us, a local tattooist mastering fine line tattoos, to have a live tattoo session all through out the event. We also have Kasingkasing Press to display their books at the event and La Roasteria (the local cafelier) to display their local specialty coffee. There will be local artists and creators who will be selling local merchandises as well. Herbs in Pots will have a raffle of 20 herbs to give away and Live by Healthy Kitchen will be feeding free spring rolls to everyone. Join us for a mind jam tonight! It is gonna be fun!

Travel Pakistan: one country, infinite landscapes

Article by Ayesha Fazlur Rahman, Programme Manager Kuch Khaas - The Centre for Arts, Culture and Dialogue  Travel for leisure is great; make a checklist, get your torch , snack bars and meds supply and off you go. But what about finding the travel companions? I learnt the perfect solution to that  problem one afternoon in Boston when I wanted to attend a Rumi event at the unfamiliar MIT campus. I asked not one, not 7, but 11 of my university buddies! “Sounds great, but I am busy today” was  the response , worded differently. I looked up the place on the map, got me on the bus on a cold winter evening and went alone. It worked out just fine. I also got to eat free baklava! Since then, this has been my travel plan: I go from point A to point B, I ask several potential travel partners and if nothing works out I book a tour with a tour operator and go with a group of complete strangers! The result? I have been on several trips with several travel buddies and at times even alone. Chitral, KP Province  I went to Chitral for the Kalash Spring Festival with Humaira whom I had met at a hike on the Margallah Hills, Islamabad. She was trigger happy when it came to taking pictures, which meant I got lots of pictures taken too! We were part of a travel group and got to chat with several of the other travellers: the American woman who wanted to interview all the locals and wouldn’t give a straight answer about her nature of work in Pakistan, the Dutchman who spoke the most formal version of Urdu ever spoken since 1947! The Pakistani lady doctor who one day, at the breakfast table, demanded to know why the Norwegian couple, married for 7 years, had not been able to produce an offspring thus far! During the  jeep rides across the Rumbur and Bumburet valleys, most people, other than couples, hopped on to the jeeps close at hand instead of clinging to the friends they had come with. (Internet image for Chitral) Deosai National Park, Gilgit Baltistan At an average elevation of 4114 meters , the Deosai National Park in Skardu is the second highest plateau in the world. Traveling through valleys and narrow roads, you suddenly are struck by the sheer expanse around you as you approach Deosai, literally meaning the Land of Giants. It’s a treeless plain , covered with grass and tiny pink flowers that give it a pink hue. Travel, they say, is about facing your demons and slaying them etc: for some its the fear of heights, of losing  cellphone connectivity, of getting in an accident. My fear was not having hot running water: that got sorted every morning when my still half-closed eyes were greeted with a splash of water from an ice cold mountain spring, near our camping site! What better way to prepare for a 5km not-so-steep hike to search for the Holy Grail of Deosai, the  brown bear. The day we embarked on our search, the wind announced our arrival to the bears who thought it best to take cover, away from our prying eyes and cameras. May be another day, another trip the winds will be on our side. Cholistan Desert, Multan, Bahawalpur (Punjab Province) South Punjab is also a popular tourist destination that hosts both jeep rally enthusiasts and campers in the Cholistan Desert; heritage lovers and devotees visit the beautiful shrines in Multan and Uch Sharif . To escape the relentless heat here, tours are planned in the winter months. My travel companion on this trip, Najia,  took me to an unknown destination too: the childhood world of fits of uncontrollable laughter, that had somehow not been possible since school ended. The freedom that comes with anonymity made us unbelievably foolhardy as we merrily wandered to forbidden parts of the Panjnad Headworks in Bahawalpur! I made a lasting friendship with an elderly German couple; Najia offered me up for adoption to them! Mr Manfred took a prize winning photo of us at the Lal Suhanra Park in Bahawalpur, blackbucks enjoying the misty morning along with us. Hunza and Khunjrab Pass , Gilgit Baltistan Hunza and the Khunjrab Pass (Pak-China Border) were next on my list. This time I roped in a friend of a friend’s son, whom I had met at his wedding, to travel with me. She agreed! Michelle turned out to be someone who liked to observe people and scan their conversations for deducing their personality traits; thus there was always interesting analyses of events and interactions happening around us! So this trip we talked to people and also a lot about them! The Hunza residents are known for longevity and good health, attributed mainly to the Hunza water and diet of honey and nuts. They look lean and fit too. At an elevation of 4693 metres, the Khunjerab Pass is the highest paved international border crossing in the world. Fairy Meadows , Gilgit Baltistan This is a valley with a breathtaking view of Nanga Parbat The Killer Mountain. Fittingly, the 10 km road that leads from Raikot Sirai to Fairy Meadows is rated among the top 12 most dangerous roads in the world. Once there, a 6 hour mountain trek takes you to the Fairy Meadows camping site, at an altitude of 3300 metres. This trip is not for the fainthearted so I wanted to do it while I still had age on my side; no travel partner, no problem: I went alone with a bus full of strangers. Nope, didn’t make any lasting or even temporary friendships this time, the sole of my hiking boots gave way at the first step of the 6km hike. The ghoray wallah offered to trade shoes with me for the duration of the hike, at the end of which a Nepalese med student from Lahore gave me an extra pair that he had. See, it worked out just fine. We think we need friends more than we actually do. Believe me when I say the following about the view of the Nanga Parbat: It’s alive, with a personality, with changing moods; mostly unsmiling but generously giving from its treasure trove of beauty a few coins for the lonely traveller to carry home. Sardaryab (KP Province) , Pir Chinasi (AJK) Sometimes travel for work can turn into a bit of sight seeing too. My colleagues Fauzia, Samreen and Rahmat in Peshawar took me to Sardaryab ( the head of the river) in Charsadda. We picked chapli kebabs along the way and ordered fish there, what a treat! What a serene little spot! After a training workshop for textbook developers in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Azad Jammu &Kashmir (AJK), we went up a spiralling road to Pir Chinasi. At an elevation of 2900 meters, this hill top gives a pretty view of the city and surrounding rural areas.
