In every culture sharing food is a gesture of welcome, an offer of comfort, a sense of community. Lynn Susholtz’s video installation, Grandmother’s Kitchen is a visually rich compilation of film and images she has been collecting in San Diego since 2010. Envisioned as a visual poem, the video traces the diverse cultural composition of the San Diego region though the depiction of cooking, growing and sharing the many varieties of food presented. Graphics and text are used to identify the dishes and the region of the world from which the dish was transported to San Diego. Foods and the rituals surrounding meals have always been an expression of home, culture, and connection to others. Grandmother’s Kitchen is a celebration of the borderless diversity of cultures that make up the San Diego region.
