COSMOPHAGE COLLECTIVE x PERFUMARIE PRESENTS
FOOD, FRAGRANCE & MEDICINE

 

On January 29th, 2020, Jimmy Tran and Q Nguyen of Cosmophage Collective will present their latest edible environment in collaboration with Perfumarie, highlighting ingestible and olfactory healing. Guests attending will have the chance to experience three different interdependent categories- food, fragrance and medicine- being unified during this sensational presentation of such prevalent and essential components of our world.

"The preparation and consumption of food, the art of fragrance, and the practice of medicine are coincidentally arcane and modern, tangible and intangible, sapient and superficial, divine and carnal. Even while there continue to be exciting innovations in these fields, these three disciplines continue to be subject to the traditions of the past. From the Classical Period to the Age of Enlightenment, fragrance was the original medicine, playing a crucial therapeutic function to treat ailments of all sorts." -Jimmy Tran, Cosmophage Collective

In this immersive and interactive event produced by Cosmophage at Perfumarie, we will explore three combinations of these disparate regimes: food as medicine, fragrance as food, and fragrance as medicine—touching upon ancient roots and presenting embodied questions for the future.

Tickets available here.
