Mouthfeel is a collection of five films curated by Megan Fizell exploring the mouth through its navigation, ingestion and expulsion of edible and non-edible substances. The films aim to evoke a synaesthetic response in the viewer, triggering the sense of taste and touch.
The films are produced and performed by four women artists and one husband-wife duo and include the following:
ELIZABETH WILLING, Lick, 2009
HILLERBRAND & MAGSAMEN, Coffee & Milk: Water Dance, 2005
HANNAH RAISIN, Rose Garden, 2009
MARTYNKA WAWRZYNIAK, Chocolate, 2010
NINA ROSS, The Foreignness of Language, 2011
