Eis Dolomiti, learning process, free ice-cream, 2019

A retired italian ice-cream maker teached to the artist one of his recipe. This recipe hadn't been made since 10 years, when his shop closed.

This knowledge and technic has been learned and re-made by the artist, making 300 pots of ice-cream prior the opening of the exhibition. During the show, a freezer full of ice-creams was on display, and every visitor was invited to grap a pot and taste the ice-cream, the taste-experience finalizing the whole process.

Focusing on its immaterial aspect, the artist questions the idea of transmission and reactivation of private knowledge. The ice-creams become small time-and-knowledge sculptures: their difficult conservation, always ending-up melting, become a symbol of the whole problematic of knowledge perpetuation and transmission.
