Messy



Cooking got a little messy this weekend...I kid, I kid! This is actually an art installation titled Heute bleibt die K├╝che kalt, wir gehen in den Wienerwald by Marlene Haring.

"A site-specific installation for the group show 'Egocaster' organised by Supersaat, Vienna. Freshly (at least at the beginning) cooked spaghetti overflowed from every possible receptacle in the kitchen. The title is a rhyme meaning 'Today the kitchen remains unused (cold), (and) we are going to the Vienna Woods'. Wienerwald is the the forest around the city of Vienna, as well as the name for a chicken restaurant chain in Austria."

I can only imagine the clean-up process.

It makes me think of the children's book Strega Nona.

oh wow. yeah. i definitely wouldn't wanna be part of that clean up crew. spaghetti's so slippery and tricky.

interesting concept.

I bet a bunch of little kids would have a BLAST cleaning that up. I also love how clean my kitchen looks in comparison-finally! lol

Isn't this something you've always wanted to do?

YES - how fun, but wouldn't want to clean up either!

Jude said...

Okay, I'll never complain about a dirty kitchen again!

Gin said...

Eeew! So not wanting to join in with the clean-up crew. Too messy.

However, I do know a Little someone who would LOVE to play in a vat of noodles. Dunno why?

I have never made a mess like that in my kitchen. I have to say I feel glad about that. Wow. What a mess is right. Yikes to the clean up crew ;)

Awesome! {I also love how google ads has decided that "pasta recipe" is an appropriate ad to tag to this post. :-)}

Simple Answer said...

Once you get this place cleaned up, come to my place for pie.

A-M said...

That is just great! My boys would love to get in and have a play in that! A-M xx

Unbelievable! I actually gasped as I loaded the page.

Songy said...

I used to be a 'noodle girl' and after looking at this i wonder how much I had in my life time.

Luckily, I rarely have any noodles nowadays. :)

Yikes. This is stressing me out, just imagining the cleanup process! But how fun would it have been to actually set up these shots?!

quaint handmade said...

i'm just glad there was no sauce or meatballs! the thought is giving me hives ;)!

The Lil Bee said...

I'm about this graceful in the kitchen. Scary, huh?!

Wienerwald is to Germany and Austria as Crackerbarrel is to the US.

Megan said...

I can't even imagine how long it took to make all the pasta used for the installation. Hope they had an industrial kitchen!

Leanne said...

I think this is pretty cool. Sometimes I slack on the cleaning part at my apartment- especially if a creative art project captures my mind! But this takes *that* to a whole new level. Wow! My husband and I love the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago and this seems like an exhibit that a place like the MCA would feature...

JLC Studio said...

Yikes!!!! I can't even imagine doing this...crazy!
