70 x 7 The Meal act XXVI 70 x 7

The Meal act XXVI was the 26th act in Lucy + Jorge Orta’s ongoing banquets took place at the Fundació Joan Miró in support the ArtAids Foundation.

70 x 7 The Meal act XXVI was comprised of a set of limited edition Royal Limoges porcelain plates with 7 different motifs: the artichoke: a symbol of the heart; the spectrum: contextual colours created by the artists representing specific places or events that have moved them; and the graphic measures: proposes different levels to gauge social behaviour. The printed table linens were hand-embroidered by Fine Cell Work, a charity that rehabilitates prisoners by giving them the opportunity to earn and save money and rebuild their lives through craft and achievement.

A cocktail designed by Antoni Miralda was served before dinner. Olienunllum was a ceremonial action conceived for the context of this exhibition, and for the space in which the intervention took  place: the courtyard of the Fundació Joan Miró and the olive tree that presides over it.
