Elín Margot is a French-Icelandic designer/artist. Her latest works focus on the representation of gender and sexuality in our food habits. Food is a carrier of culture, it is the holistic result of innumerable human interactions, technologies and beliefs. Elín Margot creates unique foods and eating experiences that question our present society and explore alternative futures. Food here is both an artistic medium and a communication tool she uses to create convivial multi-sensory edible events. By displaying real elements of a fiction, she calls on the audience's judgement and hopes to create debate.
