Bankstown Bites 2017: Art and food make perfect combination

Bankstown Bites 2017: Art and food make perfect combination A new attraction is coming to the Bankstown Bites Festival this year and will be featured at the Canterbury-Bankstown Arts Centre. No  

 A new attraction is coming to the Bankstown Bites Festival this year and will be featured at the Canterbury-Bankstown Arts Centre. 

Three artists will be selected to showcase their new work which is all about food as part of the 3x3 Arts & Ecology Project. 

Administrator, Richard Colley, said the project aims to highlight food meeting art and culture. 

“It’s a brilliant opportunity for artists to highlight their talent and highlight the richness of food and flavours from Canterbury-Bankstown,” Mr Colley said. 

“Perhaps we’ll see an artist install an edible food installation, which I hear is all the craze these days, or create a fruit and vegetable display, like the ones we see at the Easter Show. 

“Whatever these artists decide to do, I’m looking forward to seeing the end result, as I’m sure the 10,000 or so visitors who attend Bites will be too.” 

The three artists selected will stage their work in the incubate gallery, forecourt and foyer in the Arts Centre. 

The Art & Ecology project involves artists developing work in response to local and broader issues. Last year, the project focused on “The Night Sky Project”, which local Padstow Heights resident, Stephanie Peters, was part of. 

“I ran one of the Arts Centre’s story-telling workshops that explored the memories, dreams, songs, activities, and fairytales from the childhood of local residents, which were interesting and entertaining,” Ms Peters said. 

The stories and mementos from these workshops then led to a combined theatre performance at the Arts Centre. 

“It was great to be a part of something that big in our community. I’m looking forward to another opportunity like it,” she said. 

Ms Peters has applied again this year and has pitched an idea for the 3D art-piece. 

“My submission focuses on the array of fruit and vegetable shops we have in Canterbury-Bankstown and engaging with the owners to recycle the packaging they use,” she said. 

“If I get selected, I’m excited about creating the sculpture and having thousands of people see it.” 

The artists will be selected at the end of June and install their works in the week leading up to Bankstown Bites.
