Al Koumia. The complete Italian Female
Al-bunduqiyya Collection, Venice - invited
I have been asked to create a work for the Al-bunduqiyya Collection in Venice. The collection is a 'menu' of artworks to be experienced through the action of eating. So, I created a menu of edible cream glosses: 'Spicy and free' (tomato, basil, garlic, hot pepper); 'Saucy but not too much' (pesto); 'Don't be shy' (four cheese); 'Sea games' (tuna fish, shrimps, garlic, pepper); 'Sweet for you' (chocolate, cream); 'Morning coffee' (coffee, sugar); 'Drink it all' (cappuccino). Note to tasting: the 'complete Italian Female' menu should be served directly on the lips and tasted with French kisses. Instructions for use: do not smoke before tasting; very long tasting time. Designed as a 'chemosensory trip for two', the chemical molecules of the food slowly melt into solvent watery solution (saliva).
