About Maya Minder and Ewen Chardronnet

Maya Minder (born 1983) lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland, and Paris, France. “Cooking thus transforms us,” is a framework Minder weaves like a thread through her work. For Minder, cooking serves as a metaphor for human transformation, and she combines this with the evolutionary idea of a symbiotic coexistence between plants, animals, and humans. She creates entanglements between human commodities and the animism of nature—a table of diversity, not yet digested.

Ewen Chardronnet (born 1971) is an artist, author, journalist and curator living and working in Paris and Zurich. In his work, he is interested in practices, tactics and speculations that connect artistic research and scientific knowledge to the creation of social situations that intertwine discourses and shifts of perspectives in the very fabric of society. His latest book is Space Without Rockets (with R. La Frenais, UV, 2022).
