Food art is back from the dead! And you thought that those crazy Fluxus artists from the 60’s were long gone…
Scandinavian artist Camilla Wordie creates textiles out of textures found in our daily eats. Her project is a synthesis of her love for both the culinary world and the arts. Edible textiles extends from Wordie’s other food-related productions (Am I chocolate or not? and Wearing Rice is Nice) which include tableware inspired by grains of rice and tables made of chocolate powder.
By artistically manipulating a collection of edible objects, Wordie creates a mixed-media textile that reconstructs and transforms the food resource. She mixes up pigments and applies heat in order to create thin edible sheets of ‘fabric’ that challenge the boundaries of textile design.
With the appreciation of aesthetics and design, the collection is not only functional but also intriguing in its ambiguity.
