BIOHOTEL KURZ / BERCHTESGADEN
GOLDEN FEATHER / WORLD COOKBOOK AWARD
Born in Berchtesgaden, Christl Kurz is one of the few international pioneers in the field of healthy vegetarian cooking. At times when the word “organic” was still alien and organic food was considered exotic Christl Kurz was already at the centre of events and turned the art of vegetarian cooking into her purpose in life and into her family business. For more than 30 years, Christl has shaped the vegetarian cuisine in Europe with the help of her daughter Gabi. In 2007 Gabi Kurz transported this passion from the field to the desert, to the Persian Gulf: to Dubai, as the boss of the Resort Wellbeing in the Madinat Jumeirah.
The Mother and daughter artists wish to inspire the exhibition’s visitors by approaching the “green stuff” - far beyond white plates - from a different perspective by researching the direct impact food has on the human body. Their five-part contribution “bricks of life” illustrates the different and pleasant effects of food on our bodies. The room installation is interactive and invites visitors to compose a menu from the raw products pictured on the wooden cubes, which puts body, mind and spirit in balance and keeps them healthy. The realisation after “rolling the dices”: “You are what you eat.”
