Feed Me a Story: Mendy’s Sheyn Vi Di Levone
We are posting a weekly video installment from “Feed Me a Story,” the project created by multimedia artists Theresa Loong and Laura Nova that was featured in May here. It’s part of the FABLES Public Art project produced by FABnyc.
Here is number three in the countdown of eight recipes. The Feed Me A Story team writes: “Learn how to bring citron to a higher level in Mendy Erez’s Sheyn Vi Di Levone – pretty as the moon(shine).”
Along with a giant mural (at First Street Green Park) made up of photos of the eight different family dishes they selected from seniors on the Lower East Side, the project includes videos of the residents preparing the dishes and sharing their personal histories. The featured recipes include meals made by Jewish, Italian, Chinese and Puerto Rican families based in the neighborhood.
