Safety Blanket is a series of ongoing participatory performances by Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Collective. The audience is invited to join us to knit a multiple-edged scarf and chat in an act of spontaneous intimacy and connection, questioning what forges community.
Safety Blanket #1 was performed at Chelsea College of arts on December 3rd, 2019.
Safety Blanket #2 was performed at Wadham College, Oxford, on February 6th, 2020.
The collective also organized online knitting groups and performances during the COVID lockdowns.
Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is a collective formed by Inés Cardó, Jessie Evans, Katerina Mimikou and Sophie Dickson.
The group’s research focuses on the ideas of home, domesticity, social roles and community. Our working methods consist on alternative processes of exchanging knowledge based on everyday actions and community activities. We believe that these banal activities are, in fact, performative actions that lead us to establish powerful nets of intimacy and to subjectivize the academic space.
