»Zadnja večerja zadnje francoske kraljice” / "the last supper of the last french queen"
"This time, the one looking for parallels between art and cooking was Matej Filipčič, an architect who after his studies transferred his architectural thinking into the field of theatre where he works as a director and set designer of authorial theatre performances. He transforms the stories of these performances into spatial gallery exhibits – theatre objects. He found the inspiration for the culinary staging in his latest performance and exhibition and his perception of the most recognisable and controversial Queen of France whose style and way of life marked the 18th century, Marie Antoinette. “On the one hand, there is her unique style that developed on the golden spoon which she ate with as the Queen of France, in a world full of exaggeration, luxury, affluence, colourfulness, exoticness, fantasy, fairy tales … on the other hand, there is the horror and the terror of revolution that cost her her head. From the throne of the Kingdom of France to the guillotine of the French Revolution. Her life and death are so fatefully marked by the adjective ‘French’ that the menu of today’s staging of Marie Antoinette’s last supper cannot do without everything French. In the loneliness of her last hours, only Time keeps her company during supper, for it was time that had sealed her fate.”
