The Taste of Pomegranate
طعم انار
H γευση του ροδιου

The pomegranate is a fruit of life, death, and rebirth. It can take the shape of a golden necklace hidden in a grandmother’s bra during the aftermath of the 1979 revolution in Iran. Or it can be peeled and offered by another woman to her migrant granddaughter. In the workshop The Taste of Pomegranate, participants are invited to prepare pomegranate syrup on top of a pomegranate-illustrated tablecloth with printed stories about this precious fruit. With each stain and seed, the pomegranate leads us toward the sour taste of life and death. 

In collaboration with artist Iliada Charalambous.
