NOM is the third exhibition by The Laundry. An exploration of food; food attitudes and the social and environmental byproducts of our relationship with it, from a diasporic viewpoint.
Join The Laundry in an investigation into the way in which we engage with food as individuals and as communities. Looking beyond the ingested product to the roots, the background, and the choices we make with food in the everyday. Similar to The Laundry’s successful unpacking of terminology and histories in its second exhibition, ‘CUNT’, 'NOM' approaches the multi-faceted conversation that food partakes in amidst the construction of identities and cultures.
"NOM focuses on the personal understanding of each of its contributing curators and artists and the unique and nuanced relationship that they bear with food. The Laundry encourages the audience to comprehensively partake in and consider each element of this body of work’s complications and celebration of the contemporary diasporic experience."
The exhibition will act as the foundation for an interactive sensory experience; showcasing sculptural installation, video, immersive soundscapes and more. NOM will feature work from both local and globally distinguished and emerging creatives, some of whom have previously exhibited at the ICA, V&A, and SculptureCentre NY. Artists include; Guest Curators Loren Elhili and Sabrina Mumtaz Hasan, Food Designer Giulia Soldati, Multidisciplinary Artists; Ilana Harris-Babou and Moza Almatrooshi and Material Designer Renuka Ramanujam.
