PROTEIN is a project that offers an original perspective on the issues of age and its process, fashion, nutrition, and lifestyle for the “advanced generation”. It takes a quirky angle on elderly styles and what it means to be timeless. PROTEIN will be presented at Lilith Performance Studio in the form of a cooking show. On four evenings four different guests are invited to speak about topics, such as Diets, Health, People and Equipment, while the chef Petter Nilsson from the Parisian, La Gazzetta restaurant will prepare a surprising selection of dishes that reveal disparate secrets of our guests who are:
Sept 28: Actress, Cecilia Hjalmarsson
Sept 29: Nutritionist, Louise Follin
Sep 30: Founder of the foundation Sveriges Bästa Bord, Gunnar Törnquist
Oct 1: Archivist and dancer, Ellen van Schuylenburch
PROTEIN is the first collaboration between Jeuno JE Kim and Mirko Winkel. As an upcoming journal, it puts a fresh spin on the inevitable by offering readers a selection of candid and humorous perspectives on all sides of the age equation. Displaying an eclectic mix of voices, provoking discussion and encouraging reflection, PROTEIN advocates broader attitudes to lift the taboos around the issue of age and aging.
Jeuno JE Kim (KOR/SWE) coming from theology, economics, music and radio, Jeuno JE Kim has explored different genealogies in the realm of sound, performance and text. Her artistic practice combines different disciplinary frameworks by mixing methods and cultural cannons, by problematizing the narratives between fiction and reality, and by blending historical “facts” with speculation about current movements. Jeuno JE Kim (born in South Korea, currently lives in Malmo) has worked collaboratively both on singular and long-term curatorial/exhibition projects.
Mirko Winkel (DEU) is a choreographer and performance artist based in Berlin where he works as a model and teaches at HBK – der Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig. His focus lies in the performativity of social narrations, consensus, dependency, misinformation, pretence, exhaustion and the ways in which cultural excesses are generated and dealt with. Mirko Winkel has studied performance art under Marina Abramovic, and did his postgraduate studies in Solo/Dance/Authorship (MA SoDA) at UDK Berlin.
