Elizabeth Willing

“Exploring the sculptural and multisensory potential of food has been a key focus of Elizabeth Willing’s practice. Her work includes sculpture, installation, performance and participatory dining events that engage audiences through sensory dimensions such as smell, taste, and touch. In creating her work Willing is not only an artist, but a cook, designer, engineer and scientist, testing and manipulating the material qualities and limitations of food and applying her highly refined aesthetic sensibility.”

– Rachael Parsons, Director, New England Regional Art Museum 2018

 

Elizabeth Willing’s Strawberry Thief project, presented at Melbourne Art Fair 2–5 August 2018, has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
