dc.description.abstractThis article examines the role of food and spices in the conceptual art of the South African artist Berni Searle. It focuses on the visual representation of food, spices and culinary traditions through the exploration of her series "Colour Me", which includes photographic installations: Traces (1999), "Looking Back (1999), Girl (1999), along with her video installation Snow White. All these pieces reference in differing ways food, spices or the traditions tied to them. Searle also uses gastronomic imagery to comment on topics such as slavery. As is evident from her work, food and spices are not necessarily associated with the preparation of food. © 2012 Copyright JLS/TLW.
