The Creamery


The Creamery is the third work in the Artisan Series.

The Artisan Series began with RISE (bread-making as a metaphor for building a community) and The Wine Project (wine making as a metaphor for village politics, power, ritual and revelry).

Now two contrasting ideologies collide in a tactile world of milk, herbs, leather, bells and cheese making from cheddar to blue vein.

“How can you govern a country which has 246 varieties of cheese?”
― Charles de Gaulle

Artistic Director Sacha Copland researched this work in Noyers-sur-Serein with the assistance of the New Zealand France Friendship Fund and New Zealand with support from Creative New Zealand.
