Abstract

In a physiological sense, food sustains life. For all organisms, humans included, the ‘circle of life’ includes some form of food, and without it, the organism will not survive. However, for humans this basic view of food has long since become an insufficient explanation of all that we now think and feel when we hear the word ‘food’.

Imagining food: art, aesthetics and design investigates universal concerns around the topic of food. We have taken a deliberately international stance, but placed within a Tasmanian context. The Self Portrait created by Christopher Orchard for Imaging Food specifically dealt with food scarcity, indigenous food - including uncovering rituals associated with food - and food as vehicle for transcultural exchange.

The Exhibition was shown as part of 'Ten Days on the Island' in Launceston at Academy Gallery in February and later toured to Burnie Regional Gallery in May.
