Descriptions 

The cup was presented in New York at the New Museum of Contemporary Art on occasion of Book Expo America in May 2002 .Marina Abramovic was signed the "Spirit cooking" books in celebration of Charta's (a publisher of art books in Europe) ten-year anniversary. The cup is decorated inside with 23.5 carat gold and has small hole just below the brim which allows you to see the interior of the cup.  Abramovic explained that this relates to her childhood where you would share your coffee with the spirits.

Based on rumors, many of these cups disappeared from display during expo.

The cup was sold in 2 different ways:

  • Special package including the volume of wood in a special edition entitled "Spirit cooking", monograph of the artist's. Total 500 sets were sold. Price on ebay around $1300 . It’s very rare for sale and will definitely be one of the most wanted set of illy Art Collection. Interesting , I think there's typo in "illy Collection" book , claiming that cup accompanies a special edition of the book "Public Body". I would appreciate if somebody confirms that.
  • 250 cups were sold individually without special packaging will book in illy cup sites of Italy and France only ( not sure why ) for 260 euro and was sold out in matter of minutes. Price on ebay around $200-250. It’s relatively rare for sale.

Brochure - Spirit Cooking Book

1996 Spirit Cooking was the first project Jacob Samuel produced with his portable aquatint box, working with Abramović—a performance artist with little printmaking experience—in her Amsterdam studio. The artist chose to make a cookbook,writing a series of "aphrodisiac recipes" that serve as evocative instructions for actions or thoughts. To allow the artist to create the accompanying etchings in a manner consistent with her body-oriented practice, Samuel prepared the plates with soft ground so she could scratch directly onto the surface with her fingernails and encouraged her to work with spitbite, using her own saliva with nitric acid to paint on the plate.

One of the receipe from "Spirit Cooking": "in time of doubt keep a small meteorite stone in your mouth".
