For Alice Mulliez, food is an artistic material for consumption and for creation. Food induces a desire to share and enjoy, which is why she chose it as the main medium for her work. This self-described food addict covers the entire symbolic range of dining, from recipe to consumption, from appetite to forbidden fruits, from social difference to cultural belonging, from established rituals to inventing new ones.
Jérémy Gobé is a visual artist whose work focuses on the unique work-related gestures of human beings. He graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, where his final year pieces “Monument aux mains 1” and “Monument aux mains 2” were designed using offcuts of felt donated by employees from a factory near his parents’ home.

Sculpture, photography, architecture and ecology intersect in the work of this pair of British artists, whose central focus is on the temporal nature of processes of growth and the passage of time. They often work in public spaces and grass grown from seed is one of their materials of choice. In 2007 they collected and germinated hundreds of acorns from the 7000 Oaks planted by Joseph Beuys, and now have 250 surviving saplings. Dialogues and research are integral to their artwork Beuys’ Acorns and their objective is to care for these descendants with great resolve, embracing Beuys’ call for cities and towns to be “forest-like”. They have received the NESTA Pioneer Award, the Wellcome Sci-Art award and the L’Oreal Grand Prize for their photographic images created using chlorophyll’s sensitivity to light.
