Shannon Cochrane
from November 9th 2019 to December 14th 2019
The Silent Dinner

Artist Shannon Cochrane (Toronto) presents The Silent Dinner, a series of food-related performances that bring together as participants, people from the Deaf community who express themselves through sign language and hearing groups. This cycle of performances, which takes place over three Saturdays, offers a unique structure: in front of the audience, the performers prepare a meal together in silence in the space of the gallery transformed into a kitchen, without communicating in their original language. By involving different layers of language in interaction, Cochrane develops a reflection on communication and performative practices.
