Kitchen Show

Bobby Baker


Video documentation of Bobby Baker's Kitchen Show (1991), first in the Daily Life Series.

"One day I admired my technique while peeling carrots. I was spending a great deal of my time doing mundane tasks and decided that an international satellite link should be set up where my live actions would be beamed around the world to crowds of cheering spectators. The next best thing was to open my kitchen to the public and display a set of live actions. This toured and was shown on Australian TV – I was mobbed thereafter in the street with people saying they’d taken to hurling pears around and felt 'Bloody marvellous, thank you, Bobby.'" - Bobby Baker
