LEAVING THE TABLE
13 April – 4 May 2013
Opening Event | Saturday 13 April 6pm
Slide Night | Friday 3 May 7pm
Elizabeth Willing’s practice examines gastronomy with an emphasis on the collective experience of food; how and what we eat. Between the studio and kitchen, Willing’s work unpacks the structural and sensual qualities of foods often in absurd, unstable and formless ways. In Leaving the Table Willing explores anxieties and beliefs around feeding and food in a society becoming increasingly aware of what they eat.
Join Boxcopy for the first in a series of Slide Nights on Friday 3 May, 7pm – Level 3, Metro Arts. Our current artist Elizabeth Willing will discuss the development of her practice over the last four years, and her experiences with the Experimental Food Society in London.
Elizabeth Willing completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) in 2009 at Queensland University of Technology. In 2008 she co-founded the Brisbane artist-run initiative Accidentally Annie St Space. Elizabeth was selected for the 2010 Fresh Cut exhibition at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) and has since gone on to show nationally at the Melbourne Next Wave festival, Screen Space (Melbourne) and SafARI (Sydney). She was awarded the Metro Arts Artist in Residence in 2012. In 2011 Elizabeth undertook a two month mentorship with New York artist Janine Antoni and has recently returned from London where she carried out work experience with members of the Experimental Food Society.
