From sprouts to meat by way of milk, honey, salt, vegetables and bread, humanity’s ancestral foods are becoming the raw materials of an aesthetic that makes your mouth water. Comestibles are inspiring artists’ creativity. A whole section dedicated to this kind of art was at Maison et Objet 2013, under the the name Nourritures Premières - Influences by Elizabeth Leriche.
The raw and the cooked are feeding our appetite for authenticity and materials with symbolic expressions that transcend nature and emotions that reinvigorate the body and mind. A liturgy of sharing that celebrates vital energy and the pleasure of the senses.
