We Eat We Are

A Spark NT exhibition curated by Sarah Pirrie
Presented by Araluen Arts Centre and Artback NT

We Eat We Are celebrates food as a form of social sculpture that unites, nourishes and renews.

Artist and curator Sarah Pirrie explores the relational experience of food as a cultural determinant, as a sacred language and as a vital environmental resource at the heart of community. Bringing together new work by leading, mid-career and emerging Northern Territory artists and featuring artworks and collectives influenced by the Territory’s food culture, We Eat We Are presents a visually immersive and interactive exhibition experience.

The SPARK NT program is an Artback NT initiative which supports an independent or emerging Northern Territory curator to foster critical thinking in art and curatorial practice, to develop an exhibition project for tour, and provide artists from the Northern Territory with opportunities to present their work within a curated touring exhibition.
