Our mutual love of eating and lack of cooking skills have given us an almost childlike fascination with food and dining. We connect on our shared interest in how social relationships and visual associations are triggered by food.
We obsessively salvage animal bones from our own meals to create our sculptural artworks. We want to help lose the macabre associations we have with bone, and the disgust element of food waste. Along with skins and shells, we are interested in it’s wide availability as an industrial by-product.
Our still life assemblages examine different possible approaches to food presentation, through engagement with surface, composition and form. We often explore ideas of absurdity, disgust and surrealism, fabricating imaginary meals and tableware.
The transient nature of food as a working material, has led us to explore ideas of capturing and recording sculpture, our interests widening to sculpture-based photography and moving image.
