The performance ‘right on your hips’ was created for the ‘true stories untold’ event in May 2010. In this participatory performance, transformed and stretched gummy bears end up as a wearable fashion item which literally sits ‘right on your hips’. This performance belongs to a series of ‘food work’ that plays on the ‘aesthetic’ interrelatedness of taste and vision. At the same time, this series challenges understandings of sugar as simply abundantly available devoid of historical and contemporary contexts of production, use and implications.
