Unfold: Sculptor David Troice And Chef Chris Flint Fuse Art With Food

餐厅老板 Philip Camino 上周在当代雕塑家 David Troice 于 路径画廊 的雕塑个展 “unfold”上,呈现出他结合艺术与美食的视觉飨宴,与他的餐厅 “Fellow” 相呼应。.

Chef Chris Flint collaborated with the Mexico City-based artist to create a culinary experience inspired by the concept and visual storyline of the Unfold exhibit that runs through January. A collection of those creations will pop up on the Fellow menu during the residency.

Fascinated by origami and unfolding shapes as a child, Troice’s work is composed of steel sculptures that reflect his view of reality by exploring the reaction between light, space and matter. The exhibit references natural shapes that fold and bend into space like tectonic plates crashing to create mountains, and plants growing with the resulting leaves unfolding.

“We spent about two months going back and forth, talking and texting between L.A. and Mexico and bouncing ideas off each other,” Troice tells L.A. Weekly at the opening of Unfold. “I sent him a mold of one of my trademark sculptures and he has actually made one of my pieces edible out of passion fruit.”

Some of the menu items that Flint created reflecting the artist’s sculptures like Moon I, Source I, Ring I, Wave I, and Fragments included:

Carrot tartare with mole and bottarga: “I wanted to plate this bite with geometric shapes in mind with flavors that blend and balance themselves like David’s work.”

Mushroom meringue with parsnip and black truffle: “When talking to David about his experience and memories related to food, he spoke of the meringue and how it brought back memories of his childhood, as they were sold as street food where he grew up. We wanted to do a savory version with mushrooms and shape it in a way inspired by the artwork.”

Sea urchin with coconut and rice: “David speaks to the transformative flavor of sea urchin and how a bite can take you to another place. We use a puffed rice cracker to convey the shape of air and water and season the uni with coconut and lime.”

Foie gras with apples and brioche: “I wanted to use a luxurious ingredient in its simplicity. We use variations of apple cut into diamonds in an attempt to mirror David’s work.”

Passion fruit pate de fruit: “David created silicone molds of his artwork for us to play with in the kitchen. We used passion fruit with spiced sugar poured into molds to create an edible art form.”
