Elizabeth Willing’s practice examines gastronomy with an emphasis on the collective experience of food; how and what we eat. Working in both the studio and kitchen she prefers confectionary as a material to make predominantly sculptural forms as well as utilizing installation, performance and experimental dining events.
Food’s sensual, structural and ideological elements are dislocated and isolated to then be recombined with new form, application and purpose. The result is a body of work that moves between multi-sensory experiences, the social or convivial potential of ‘serving’, or considering the political and ethical concerns of humans who are becoming increasingly aware of what they eat.
