Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva: the first
artist-in-restaurant at Pied à Terre:
Her work incorporated 10 sculptural and installation works made primarily using raw materials sourced from the restaurant’s kitchen. These included: quail carcasses and wishbones, scallop skirts and corals, sheep testicles, fish skins and bones.
Elpida carefully cleaned and preserved these unlikely materials, transforming them into new, beautiful sculptural forms. This involved in-depth research and close collaboration with the chefs; it was heavily influenced by the restaurant’s daily routines and changing menus.
