Title: Desire and Taste: Disillusion in Migration
Authors: Brown, Racheal Baaba
Issue Date: 10-Feb-2015
Abstract: Individual taste and desires are informed and regulated by laid down structures of capitalism and consumerism, and most times we just fill in these structures .The cloths we wear, the food we eat, institutions we attend and jobs we offer or desire to offer, may all be some forms of lacks and wants introduced in our lives for us to also invest our in. These may constitute Disillusion. This thesis explores ideas on Desire and Taste, and engages the diverse heterotopias related to them and how they manifest as disillusions in migration. Some literature on advertisement and public relation, commodification, and consumer behaviours inspired by taste and certain actions have been reviewed. Some artists who have worked on desire and taste as well as confectionary art and techniques were also examined to give the work grounding. Sculptures rendered in sugar depicting some barter objects of the transatlantic slave trade and everyday use objects were created. A final exhibition in the form of installation was done to investigate the responses to taste and desire and was captioned “Unveiling the Veiled” which stirred a lot of reactions and comments amongst viewers.
