COME UN FORNO, 2014

In the prison male section R2/1 of Borgo San Nicola in Lecce, inmates love cooking. This is not allowed but fairly tollerated by the direction.

Recipes are elaborate and they sometimes require a working oven: these drawings show some of the models invented in R2/1. They recall the object collected in Russia by Vladimir Archipov.

One or more camping ovens, a blanket, a lid, a locker, allow to spread the heat around the food and cook it like a oven.

They are ready-made, temporary objects, that bring warmth and the idea of a kitchen, of a house.
