Artists' Table includes a farm-to-table meal prepared by local chef and restaurateur Jason Weiner and features an intimate presentation by Artists-in-Residence BAKIS.
Chef Jason Weiner boasts extensive experience at many of the country’s top kitchens. Since 2001, he has served as executive chef and proprietor of Almond restaurant which opened its first location in Bridgehampton, New York, followed shortly thereafter by a second Almond outpost in Manhattan’s Flatiron District in 2008 and L&W Oyster Company in 2012. In June 2016, Weiner and his business partner opened Zigmund’s Bar located at 203 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike in Bridgehampton, NY.
Serafita Grigoriadou and her male collaborators Stathis Anthanasiou (film & theatre director) and Stavros Gasparatos (Composer) collectively titled BAKIS, will use the highly creative environment at Watermill to develop a performance inspired by J.Berger’s phrase “Men act and women appear. Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at”. The performance will center around an electronically prepared piano (a.k.a wired piano), and multiple projections of live and prerecorded video. The project is currently in the early development stage.
