I like food
I've always liked food
I like to eat it - I love to cook it
and share it with my friends.
It arouses all my senses and heals my wounds
It is comfort, warmth, nurture - it makes me smile
It wraps, protects, cares, loves....
I love food
delicious scrumptious succulent tasty
luscious gorgeous sensual exciting
erotic fleshy chunky greasy
heavy fatty bulky disgusting
I hate food
Hilly's recent work, Eating Disorder is an ironic look at the relationship between food and body image in our society. Having struggled with her own body image all her life, she has decided to come out of the closet and into the kitchen! Here, sensuality and an ambiguous eroticism are played out at the dinner table!
In the summer of 2008, following a private viewing and workshop evening, Eating Disorder was exhibited at thestudio in NW London until 23rd July. The results of the workshop evening can be viewed here.
It was later shown at Pulse Café Bar in Todmorden West Yorkshire, where it continued to generate much comment and controversy, not least because Pulse serves only vegetarian food . . . See the pictures of the show and the opening evening's extraordinary food.
A limited edition series of fine art photographs is available:
Eating Disorder prints and cards are available from the artist.
