Eat the Problem

Invasive species: ecological nightmare, or delicious feast?


Invasive species: ecological nightmare, or delicious feast? Eat the Problem is the culmination of Kirsha Kaechele’s lifelong quest to turn flaws into features, shit into gold.

She’s made some progress, in the form of a gobsmackingly deluxe volume—and the exhibitionfeasts, performances and treatments that accompany its launch.


About Kirsha Kaechele
Kirsha Kaechele is an American artist and curator, interested in the space where complex problems exists. For Kaechele, problems are simply medium for art.

Kaechele’s projects are based at Mona (The Museum of Old and New Art), in Tasmania, and New Orleans, U.S.A. In addition to art curation they include: Feasts as living art installations—temporal exhibitions in which every element of a feast is sculpture or performance; 24 Carrot—a project that creates kitchen gardens in disadvantaged areas of Tasmania and New Orleans; Heavy Metal—an art-science project focused on the mercury contamination of Tasmania’s River Derwent; Trascism—Mona’s zero-waste initiative, now implemented across Mona’s festivals and events; Material Institute—a free school in New Orleans pairing neighbourhood talent with high art, music, fashion, science and technology—a kind of Black Mountain College for urban youth.
