DOROTHÉE SELZ

Dorothee Selz has been upsetting our eating habits in various ways for over thirty years. Curious visitors are invited to take part in the experiments, and sometimes take the plunge by tasting rice dishes, salads or buns died bright blue or red. Not everyone is able to take it in his stride. Remorselessly Dorothee goes on astonishing us with her daring edible installations. Delving deeply into ourperceptions of the in situ, Dorothee Selz has never ceased to tease us with her unusual shapes. She prefers the role of re-interpreter rather than that of complete innovator demanded by advertising,and is aware that she is known not so much for her formal innovations as for her style.

Her work can be read ih bitter-sweet half tones. It is the work of a prolix artist,a colourer of food and images, a creator of images and icons on the fringeof the mainstream contemporary art scene. H
