Jean Marie Casbarian, Artist

Counting Pomegranate Seeds
Rapid Pulse International Performance Festival, June 2012
Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery, Chicago, Illinois
2-day performance with Sami Ari

Counting Pomegranate Seeds is based on an Armenian family myth that the pomegranate, a symbol of life and fertility, holds 365 seeds. If one were to place a seed in their pocket every day, they would be granted good luck. Using old linen nightgowns and hand-me-downs, small pockets are constructed, each holding a seed. As the artist obsessively counts the seeds, the fruit bleeds into her lap in an attempt to renew and regenerate youth. 

Ideas for TASTE

Zhong zi is a delicious Chinese food that is basically sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaf and steamed. We added chopped kabocha (squash), flaked roasted duck meat, and goji berries to some of the zhong zi to add some interesting flavors. To eat it, unwrap the leaves and use chopsticks to hold the sticky rice and dip it in white sugar or maple syrup. It's chewy, sticky, and has the refreshing taste of bamboo leaf!
