Title:
Recess Time - by Practice Tuckshop (Singapore)

Author:
Ang Xiao Ting

Description:
Food waste is one of the biggest waste streams in Singapore. As most food in Singapore is imported from overseas, consumers are used to purchasing unblemished produce. In order to de-stigmatise ugly produce, we created Recess Time! Recess Time is a lunch party at the heart of the Singapore arts district. It is a long-running participatory work that stages a social situation, i.e. lunch, as the site for public engagement. It has served 33 lunch sessions to date. For this programme, invited chefs go on rescue missions to salvage unwanted or ugly produce. They then incorporate the rescued produce in their menu. Each Recess Time also features a “Kaypoh” King/Queen, whose main job is to archive the conversations that emerge. Meanwhile, audiences also get to enjoy their food in the premises of Practice Tuckshop (@practicetuckshop) or on c o o p – a multi-level outdoor installation created by DO Agency with support from Nanyang Polytechnic. This reusable modular architectural system was built using biodegradable strand-woven bamboo and herbs from its solar-powered aquaponics garden are also incorporated into Recess Time menus.
