BERLIN Gallery UNDER THE MANGO TREE
Sat 23 Jun 19:30
The Sundays, when we were kids, were always special back at home in India. Angithi, the lehm grill used to be lit early morning by our cook and once on, we knew that lunch would be served around 1:30 pm – and it was always the sumptous soft goat meat cooked over the slow fire and the Daal makhani; sometimes paneer saag and much more. How the raw spices were initially cooked gentlytill one could smell them and thereafter ground on the stone slab! Together with simple red onions thinly sliced and spiced to go with this awesome dish shared by the large family – this memory has stayed - forever. We ate it with our fingers, tearing off chunks of roti and dipping it into the gravy, scooping up everything into one´s mouth, relishing every little bit on our plate. And if it was June, then the end after such a sumptous meal was always mangoes and the wonderful melons. Those afternoons were special!!
Recreation of the memory, coming as close to the textures of those spices, the moment the scent of the spices touches you; where thought is more put into not just recreating a meal but also the atmosphere. These meals are about sharing you share happiness, it grows; you share food, the capacity to remember the others grow. Regardless that we see us only once or you may join us again, our intention stays to appreciate your presence and we hope the same from you.
Only this way the borders between the known and the unknown blurr where the personal and the professional backgrounds become less important. What becomes, is, only the moment. To enjoy, to share.
