The Project

Henry Hargreaves, No Seconds – Comfort Food e Photography is the first solo exhibition held outside of the United States by the New Zealander photographer Henry Hargreaves. The exhibition, created by Mauro Zardetto and curated by Chiara Casarin, will be open from September 7th to November 24th 2013 at the Museum of Madness, Island of San Servolo, Venice, and represents a meditation journey on the concept of comfort food, defined as food that gives comfort, that nurses and opens a breach on the personal history of those who choose it. Snapshots taken from his works such as Deep Fried Gadgets and Band Riders and finally the famous series No Seconds are displayed. The format, created by ArtMovie and co-produced by ItalianaComunicazione, is completed by the food movie contest The Last Will and by a series of exclusive events in San Servolo as “conceptual” tastings, debates and meetings.


Close your eyes and let yourself go, digging in memory, up to relive the flash of an emotion, brought from the slight nuances of a taste, a forgotten aroma. Then it suddenly appears a room, a face, a gesture dear to us ... Comfort Food. Find your own “last wish” dish : this is the aim of the food movie contest entitled The Last Wish. A committee will choose, between the most voted on the web, the three food video-makers who best shared their memory in a better way and that will participate in the events that will take place in San Servolo where they will have the public tasting their “dish of the soul” in an engaging experiential mix assisted by a team of professional chefs.
