Home and Traveling Kitchen

Vivien Sansour

During her residency, Vivien transformed the terrace from a place that witnessed so much violence to a place that affirmed life and the feeling of safety represented in her project, “Home”. With a group of volunteers, they worked on clearing the plot from glass and shrapnel and added compost and irrigation system to prepare for planting. The terrace was originally planted with Mlukheyeh for the time of her residency. As a continuation, she has planted heirloom tomatoes from her seed library in hopes to share the fruit and keep its seeds to share with farmers next year.  

Vivien Sansour’s Traveling Kitchen is an extension of her work in seed conservation. She engages community in cooking heirloom crop varieties to bring a conversation about bio-culture and biodiversity to the forefront.
