2018: “Make a Salad” at Live Art for Children
“Make a Salad”
100 people work together to make a delicious salat! For the 2018 edition of our festival Live Art for Children, we recreated a famous Fluxus work by Alison Knowles. She performed her score Proposition #2, Make a Salad for the first time in London 1962, and we recreated the work in Odense 2018, mixing and eating more than 100 kg of salad with a large group of adults and children.
About the artist
Alison Knowles (born 1933) is an American visual artist known for installations, performances, soundworks, and publications. Knowles was a founding member of Fluxus, the experimental avant-garde group formally founded in 1962. Proposition #2, Make a Salad is maybe her best known work. “Everybody can enter into it by eating it,” explained Knowles, who has presented the piece at least a dozen times.
