Matilde Meireles’s “Life of a Potato” reviewed by Field Notes

From a Central European perspective, the potato is actually an exotic plant: originally it was only found in South America. In »Life of a Potato«, sound artist Matilde Meireles considers the migratory movements of food as well as its cultural coding. Field recordings from a garden in the south-west of England serve as the source material for a two-part work divided into a concrete and an abstract side. It discreetly questions the alleged banality of domestic activities related to food.
