the bread of the artist
In 2016 the conceptual artist Juan Petry started a project around bread in Castellon (Spain).
“As part of my german roots i was growing up in Cologne, a capital of art and culture in Germany. In this country we have a lot of different types of bread. If we went into a normal bakery you could select between more than 30 types of bread normaly, sometimes they offer more than 100 individual variations (Juan Petry).”
Many foreigners and even spanish people with some knowledge about this country of bread would like to have the chance to get such a bread here in spain. The local oeconomic situation is worst for all. Petry decide to promote and help to develop a network between customers and producers of bread, as a social sculpture and itself a social intervention and art work.
In May 2016 he will publish the first joint-venture in art with the local bakery in Cervera del Maestre. This will give local people, gastronomy and hotels access to his bread: “El drac – pan de artistas“.
The ingredients for this bread are high quality plants from the region of Tarragona (spelled, rye, corn, potato). All is local and bio! We us fresh clear water from a local fontaine.
The bread will be availible in the local bakery of Cervera del Maestre (every friday) and in selected places around in the Baix Maestrat.
