This exhibition was developed through the meeting between 3 artists and a pastry chef who have a personal and unusual connection to food.
BOUDOIR (/ˈbuːd.wɑːr/; French: [bu.dwaʁ]) is a woman’s private sitting room or salon in a furnished accommodation usually between the dining room and the bedroom, but can also refer to a woman’s private bedroom. The term derives from the French verb bouder to sulk, or boudeur sulk or sulking, and originally was a room for sulking in, to put away or withdraw to.
The Marquis de Sade (1740-1814) in his literary works helped develop a reputation in this small room dedicated to the privacy of female talks. Since the success of his book Philosophy in the Bedroom, the small sitting room or salon has a sulphurous and scandalous reputation combined with those of all exchanges and frolics.
CROQUE-MADAME \kʁɔk.ma.dam\ French; masc. In 1910, the origin of the word remains nevertheless unknown, the most spread being that the bar manager of the parisian café, bld des capucines, launched in the form of joke that the meat inside the sandwich was some human flesh!
Do you know to which sauce you will be eateen ? Although cooking is matters of rituals, ceremonial, life & death, isn’t the best occasion to be a bit cannibalistic and starve for spiritual nourishment. You will be sandwiched between attraction and repulsion.
Welcome in our boudoir, not a place to sulk but to exult. (all texts Hochparterre)
