Intimate,Delicious And Disgusting

The associative relationship between body and food is some of the main elements in my art work, both when I work with installations and video. I use materials such as butter, milk, cream, sausage, wax and blood. In the video INTIMATE, DELICIOUS AND DISGUSTING the bed is a basis of a saturate atmosphere, food in the bed, eating in the bed, sleepiness , memory’s from the childhood, care and maternity. The progress of this work starts in 1999. I invited 10 women to play with a body part and a food element; I photographed them, like a documentary of the occasional event. INTIMATE, DELICIOUS AND DISGUSTING is a video made in 2003 based on stills from this project.
