Chrys Zantis

Chrys Zantis was born in Australia to Greek migrant parents. She has studied visual arts formally and has undertaken various artist residencies nationally.

Zantis is a long-time resident of Logan City and held her first solo show at Logan Art Gallery in 2011. She creates intricate installations that delve into our cultural and domestic situations, informed by traditional crafts, feminist theory and mythology.

Zantis' project for The Homesickness Project will be located within the community of Beenleigh where, over a three month period, the artist will develop works, based on The Last Supper, that relate to pivotal moments in the lives of twelve participants.

The Last Supper is unfolding: it now consists of four interventions, three of which will take place in Beenleigh.

The first is a commission for some sweet relief for those afflicted by homesickness: a custom-designed chocolate from Poppy’s Chocolate in Beenleigh.

Elizabeth Woods and myself were invited to Jenny's home to talk about what she was going to cook for The Homesickness Project. Jenny told us of her historic family connections to some of the iconic farmsteads in the region. She talked about the recipes she cooked as a young girl and still cooks today.

On Friday, Mariuta made Langos for the members of the Beenleigh Multicultural Cooking Group. As always everyone was happy and excited to see their friends after a two week break. After the catch up it was down to hearing and watching how these delicious fried Romanian breads were made. Mariuta is very loved by the entire group and we consider her to be one of our master cooks. She makes with love and shares with even more love.

In preparation for the onset of the The Last Supper, Chryz Zantis and Elizabeth Woods have conducted several site visits to the Beenleigh Neighbourhood Centre, the meeting venue for the Beenleigh Multicultural Cooking Group, and one of the main sites for the project. The centre boasts a hall with a splendid demonstration kitchen where, once a week, a member of the group cooks a traditional meal.
