Of All The People In All The World:Stan's Cafe

Of All The People In All The World:Stan's Cafe


Stan’s Cafe offers a grain of truth about our planet: every grain of rice represents someone, somewhere. For this beautifully simple performance installation, the artists build small and large mounds of rice representing the political and social realities in the world: one grain of rice for the Queen, twelve grains for people who have walked on the moon, a pile for teachers in the UK, a heap for millionaires in Europe, and a mountain for people fleeing from war and disaster. Stan’s Cafe are delighted to bring Of All The People In All The World to Leeds, where visitors are invited to put their own questions and suggestions to the artists, ensuring an ever­changing rice landscape. By making normally abstract statistics tangible and placing them in thoughtful relation to each other, this powerful work of art is witty, shocking and ultimately moving.
