A boy band that cooks
Together with Felix Schellhorn and Philip Rachinger, I run the Healthy Boy Band, an art project that seeks to stir up the elite cooking scene by adding some anarchic humour. We’re currently staging an exhibition in an off space in Lucerne. We always say: We create atmosphere. The same is true of Spoerri’s snare pictures: In every restaurant and in every kitchen there’s a special atmosphere, which is of course also reflected on the table.
In art, you can be freer and make more mistakes. That’s why we established the Healthy Boy Band. In a restaurant there are lots of no-goes and expectations. The guests pay a lot and the food must taste good, one’s options are much more limited. Fortunately, my father always did what he felt like doing. This is naturally a question of character, but at Mraz & Sohn we like to experiment.
We take advantage of this freedom. And that which I try out in our art always ends up sooner or later in our restaurant.
