In 1995, in Milan, Carsten Höller, Philippe Parreno and Rirkrit Tiravanija met in a film project, produced and presented at Guenzani studio. Vicinato I is a reflection about different ways of working in contemporary art. It’s an intimate and collective multi-voice discussion, which questions the diversity role in creativity. The work becomes a common experience, where food takes symbolic and cultural nuances.
