India Rose Klap
India Rose Klap (Amsterdam) is an artist and food designer. As the daughter of a chef, she grew up in a tapas restaurant. She played with octopuses and lobsters and took naps in paella pans filled with pillows and chef’s tubes. From an early age she spent many hours in the kitchen and was brought up with a love for food. With her art projects she tries to make the consumer aware of the problems in the food industry with a real portion of food for thought. At the same time she reassures the consumer by providing a range of alternative solutions. India bundles all the concepts, culinary experiences and recipes that she creates in the utopian handbook for the kitchen of tomorrow; an ever-growing collection of creations that are by no means the norm, sometimes not even feasible up to now, but which are a first step towards a better food industry. One of these creations is India’s eatable plastic soup. On Thursday 20 and Saturday 22 June, India will serve The Utopian Dinner in The Scheepvaartmuseum and Restaurant Elixer. She will also present her projects during Kadir van Lohuizen: Rising Tide, Urban Resilience (NL) on Thursday 20 June.
