General Admission

In The Mouth is a blend of fiction and reality, a form of storytelling through the palate. The fiction comes from Chef Nuno’s – our key character’s - experiences, and that fiction helps the public to create the reality. Together these two worlds make up In The Mouth, a sensual culinary adventure to eat, feel, smell and play with, in which everything tastes as real as you want it to.

In The Mouth includes:

  • Collective suppers (Food Nights)
  • Interactive installations (Poetic Food Exhibit)
  • Products to take home and continue the experience

The objective of these experiences is to remind us of our culture's primal relationship to food while exploring our selves and our desires through shared stories. Because food is more than taste when you eat with your heart.

Nicolas Fonseca

Nicolas Fonseca is a multi-disciplinary artist and head of Mister Jaune. He creates participative experiences that draw on his background in film, interactive and in-situ projects to create layers of experience for the user. He has always been interested in food as a way to engage with people. In the Mouth is his latest foray, a universe in which food, stories and artistic collaborations invite you to play with your food.

Why In the Mouth?

Nicolas Fonseca created In the Mouth as a response to our culture which treats food as a commodity, something to tame and bend to our very practical needs to be healthy, to be environmental, to stay beautiful. In the Mouth puts the focus back on our intimate relationship with food: the stories, emotions and values that we consciously or unconsciously impose upon our food, but aren’t necessarily aware of.

What is your favourite comfort food? Which foods do you detest? Your answers will undoubtedly describe more than taste, and touch on stories and emotions. We want to revive those stories, and help people create new ones, together.
