The Divine is in the Detail
Amorevore is excited to share the first of our Land Art projects – The Geometric Food Project. All the art offerings at Amorevore will raise awareness around a key food issue, are educational, are made of natural materials, are future thinking and interactive, and are aesthetically beautiful or provoking.
The Geometric Food Project is the brainchild of Sequin Kay, a visionary contemporary artist, whose creations are a dynamic fusion of design and contemporary art. Her processes have a painterly quality due to her training at Camberwell College of Arts, where she studied the technique of abstract painting. From travelling to India and Asia, she embarked on developing her embroidery and textile techniques, leading her to new avenues within the creative process. She started to see how in various cultures the creative act is connected to the understanding of the divinity of the human experience. Sequins became her medium to load her work with esoteric meaning and divine purpose.
Sequin has felt an energy guiding her throughout her creative practice, she attempts to convey this through her sequin creations. The mystery of life flows throughout her work. Her artwork serves to activate and illuminate a multidimensional memory in her audience. Perception and metaphysical depth fuel the philosophy behind the work drawing on ancient teachings from our forbearers to convey a message of change and personal growth. Personal memories and painful losses fuel the work with a cosmic relationship to identity; her creative force is a process of abstraction of the self.
For Amorevore, Sequin will be presenting the Geometric Food Project, which visually showcases the innate wisdom and molecular geometry present in the food we eat. The aim is to develop an awareness of the power and intelligence of the geometry in our food using geometric sculptures. We encourage Amorevore guests to make the room and time to consider a deeper connection with the food that we all eat and the land it comes from.
The Geometric Food Project at Amorevore will explore a scientific understanding of food on a molecular level. A pomegranate is mostly seeds, packed tightly under the skin. All surrounded in a juicy bag of sweetness, but what is interesting is the way they stack. The way all the seeds fit together, each seed in a pomegranate is a dodecahedron in nature. When we talk about cabbage we begin to understand that the Fibonacci sequence is present in every cabbage we eat. The Fibonacci is a sequence of numbers made by adding the previous two together to get the next number in the sequence. If we use the Fibonacci numbers to make a spiral we can see it growing and see how the cabbage evolved to where it is and how ALL plant growth relates to it. By understanding the molecular and geometric form of food we can then understand that we are consuming an energetic blueprint into our bodies. Sequin will be hosting an Art Walk around the festival to discuss the seven geometrical sculptures and how they relate to food and eating consciously. Each piece will be auctioned on the evening of Sunday 28thOctober at Amorevore to raise money for environmental projects happening in Ibiza.
‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food’
Optimal Be-ing – how to be our optimal self – is a core theme that will be explored at Amorevore Food Festival. Knowledge about healthy eating and being will be shared through talks and practical demonstrations on Friday 26thOctober.
We are delighted to announce the addition of wellbeing expert Jasmine Hemsley to our world class speaker line-up. Hemlsey will be sharing a session on Ayurvedic cuisine and wisdom with Amorevore guests.
Hemsley has inspired a global audience to shift their perspectives on food and lifestyle as a founder of Hemsley + Hemsley. With a passion for home-cooked food and natural remedies, she has captured the attention of a vast global audience and uses her platform as an author and influencer to encourage a return to a simpler, more mindful everyday life.
Being our optimal selves starts with how we treat our bodies and what we eat.Jasmine shares:” I believe that small, key changes in our everyday lives can create a profound, positive impact. Even in a hectic modern world, health, wellbeing and happiness are well within reach. I encourage people to take their health into their own hands, using great nutrition, mindfulness and balance as tools to build a strong, healthy and vital body.”
Inspired by her travels in Sri Lanka and India, Jasmine’s latest concept is East by West, which realises Jasmine’s vision of Ayurvedic cuisine and wisdom. Following a successful three-month pop-up at Maiyet, the East by Westcookbook launched in November 2017, delving further into Jasmine’s passion for holistic Eastern foods and therapies.
