ArtMeatFlesh Helsinki
This live cooking show was celebrated on 10th May, 2014 in Helsinki as a part of Dinner´s ready program and course curated by Ulla Taipale. The ArtMeatFlesh is a concept by Oron Catts ( SymbioticA,The University of Western Australia) and featured artists Oron Catts, Catherine Kramer, Zack Denfeld ( The Center for Genomic Gastronomy), Laura Gustafsson (Toisten historia / The History of Others), scientist Sirpa Kurppa (MTT) and chefs Sami Tallberg and Jouni Kukkonen.

This live cooking show forces two teams of artists and scientists to face-off in a kitchen, where they confront In-Vitro meat, a secret ingredient and the very strong stomachs of the audience. The event invites the audience to taste, debate or reject a future where meat is grown in the lab. Two volunteers from the audience ware selected to judge these recipes and rituals from the future, helping to decide if mankind should move towards automated protein factories or strange new festivals of excess and penance.

Helsinki ArtMeatFlesh was celebrated in Flavour Studio at Teurastamo (Abattoir).

The event was supported by Aalto University, Flavour Studio and Kellohalli.
