Date: 2022
Support: Works on paper
Dimensions: 1 m x 2 m x 7 cm
With its meticulous marker writing on a large sheet of paper, Comment une recette traverse-t-elle le temps? (How does a recipe cross time?) embarks the viewer in a delicate, mischievous, and poetic narration.

“This artwork follows the story of a recipe and the way it propagates,” explains Juliette Green. “We learn in which circumstances it has been invented, then how it has been transmitted through the centuries, along with the evolutions of technology: first, the recipe is taught by word of mouth, then through books, magazines, cooking shows, websites, etc. The story shows the human dimension of passing knowledge over through anecdotes.”
