Paola Ferrario:
19 Pictures 22 Recipes

21 July 2011, 6:30–8:00 PM, Sue Scott Gallery

Sue Scott Gallery invites you to the launch of “19 Pictures 22 Recipes,” an artist’s cookbook by Paola Ferrario. The event will include a short reading by the author, a photographer who is represented by the gallery, and refreshments from the cookbook, which Ferrario herself will prepare.


“19 Pictures 22 Recipes” is a meditation on food, photography and human capability. Selecting from a personal archive of pictures found at flea markets and antique shops around the world, Ferrario attaches to each image a brief story or memoir and concludes each entry with a recipe. Mostly family recipes gathered from Ferrario’s Italian childhood, these are simple foods that anyone with the wish to do so can prepare. In her texts, Ferrario compares cooking yo photography, fashioning a highly personal account of the matters that most consume her. The interconnectedness of art and life, food and social relations, is here eloquently mapped out.
