“Food is central but not definitive to Winwood’s practice. Working with the tools and paraphernalia of cooking and dining the work uses food as a pivot that enables a range of discourses to come into focus.”
Expanded Dining, by Dr Elisa Oliver

as-festival-2017-207

I have over 20 years experience as an Arts Professional specialising in visual art, food, moving image and performance. I am a studio holder at Grand Union Studios in Birmingham’s Digbeth area, and an Honorary Research Associate at the University of Birmingham; since 2016 I have peer reviewed the online journal FEAST.

Research

In 2016 I applied the term ‘Expanded Dining’ to reflect my ‘beyond the plate’ approach to dining experiences and invited Dr Elisa Oliver to explore this terminology with me, which resulted in a new piece of writing Expanded Dining-PDF (Elisa Oliver, 2015) and a subsequent text Expanded Dining: Beyond the Plate published in ‘Spaces for Eating’,  FEAST in 2018. This research is ongoing.

 

Feeney Fellowship

I have been awarded a  Feeney Fellowship (2018-19) during which I’ll be harnessing new working methods and processes to reimagine the creative potential of food and eating; including casting, moulding, 3D printing and molecular gastronomy.

 

Ikon Gallery

As well as my studio practice, I am a PT Producer for Ikon Gallery’s Looping the Loop programme in Birmingham; arts activity developed for and around Ikon’s Slow Boat (a converted narrow boat) in collaboration with Ikon’s Youth Programme.

 

I am always interested to hear from people working/interested in and around food experiences and design. Please do get in touch at kayewinwood@gmail.com
