A Razor, A Shiny Knife: “NYC Dining Car”

Die kulinarische Performancegruppe A Razor, A Shiny Knife verwandelte eine New Yorker U-Bahn in ein Luxusrestaurant und servierte ein 6-Gänge-Menü: “On the first of May we hosted a “luncheon” on the L line of the New York City subway. The subway is a familiar place, providing a necessary means of transportation for many New Yorkers. Its stairwells, turnstiles, platforms, trains and unpredictable elements are all-too-familiar to its dedicated patrons. One begins to know the exact time of travel from one destination to another. One begins to intuit the conditions of a ride, anticipating smooth stretches and knowing when to brace for a jarring turn. Through a series of familiar gestures, presented in commonplace locations in unfamiliar ways, we set out to challenge a habitual experience.” Via
