Accepted abstract - Creative Tastebuds Symposium

The Tastebuddies: Drawing, painting and exhibiting taste

By Leonardo Sagastuy - (aka Olaf Zhiga)

At this showcase, the artist Leonardo Sagastuy, taste ambassador from the centre Taste for Life, will present his art project The Tastebuddies. The artist has produced a children’s book about taste that will be displayed. The book was part of an exhibition at Aarhus Kunsthal (2016) where the audience could ‘paint taste’ on the wall, and there were tasting boxes to try while reading the book. In addition animation films with the figures from the book were exhibited. The aim of this project was to make taste explicit and possible to talk about through dialogues and drawing sessions with children and their parents.
