Eat! My Son, (2013) was a one day relational event, which involved sharing food prepared and cooked by my octogenarian mother and me. This event was held in the same site as the installation, Trade (2013)during the Castlemaine State Festival 2013. Together, Trade (2013) and Eat! My Son (2013) engage Bhabha’s question: ‘How does the post-colonial condition influence the problem of the Past? (Bhabha 2009, p. 33). The primary intention for Trade (2013) is to bring forward problems inherent in trading practices during colonial times, specifically relating to exploitation and power. Eat! My Son (2013) shifts this condition by presenting a space of inclusion and non-hierarchy, where food is cooked (using the spices from Trade (2013)) and freely shared among the participants. The participatory event attracted more than 200 people who we shared a ubiquitious Indian meal of rice, dhal, vegetable curry and a brinjal pickle.
