Aaron Head’s intriguing exhibition combined the mediums of sculpture, installation and film to further explore his preoccupation with food and drink and their intricate social role in contemporary, multicultural Britain.
One film piece ‘Terrace’ depicted a subtle intervention on Bedford’s High Street, featuring a small model of a typical terrace house constructed from sliced white bread, placed on the pavement during a busy lunch hour. The house adopted a cute sense of domesticity and home life, which marked stark contrast to the hustle and bustle that surrounded it, making it appear threatened and vulnerable.
Within each of the installations, there were a number of sculptural pieces that broadly related to food production and cultural identity.
