PHOTOS: The Folly Acres Cook Book Launch NYC

April 10, 2015 by Mary

Other Criteria were pleased to launch The Folly Acres Cook Book in New York City on Wednesday, April 8th.

Sue Webster presented her semi-autographical cookbook and read some extracts. The book combines recipes from the kitchen of the Gloucestershire smallholding shared by the artist-duo Tim Noble and Sue Webster, along with drawings, photographs, thoughts, anecdotes and personal memories.

‘Somewhere along the way, my artistic instinct got the better of me and what started life with good intention as an authentic cookbook somewhere in the style of Gwyneth Paltrow — it started to melt away halfway into something far more interesting and less practical' explained Sue Webster. 'This is a punk-y cookbook. This is a fucked-up cookbook,' she added. 'Some of them are edible, and some of them are just ideas.’

Sue Webster’s close friend, PJ Harvey, contributed a poem as an introduction to the book - inspired by her visit to Folly Acres, which she read at the launch. PJ Harvey also realised a surprise performance and sang a few tracks. 'I had to leave the room and come backstage and cry, because that last song of Polly’s' confessed Sue Webster.

They talk about it...

STYLE.COM: “Webster is bringing the viewer inside the artist’s mind with The Folly Acres Cook Book, a just-released collection of homegrown recipes, illustrated diary entries, and autobiographical scrawlings rendered by Webster from 2010 to 2014.”

ARTINFO: “Harvey herself appeared in full force to celebrate at Other Criteria, reading aloud the poem she wrote for the book’s introduction before grabbing her black lacquered acoustic and launching into a few of Webster’s favorites”
