Baked Dinner

Janet Tavener, 2011

"In both her cast sculptures and her photographs, Tavener presents the viewer with a ‘double-take’ - familiar things made unfamiliar by their very materials (ice shaped as fast foods and natural food cast in plaster and resin) to make theoretical and visual puns with a punch. It is easy to mistake the real and the copy, the tabletop for the landscape, and culture for nature. Tavener presents big questions in a way that subtly unfold." - Melting Moments, Incinerator Art Space, Catalogue 2011
