Melissa Ryke cheese feet mould sculpture art australia france

Like a bath of warm milk is a performative exploration of cheese as sculptural object. I used my feet to remould the cheese because I often think of them as my first and continual point of sensory contact with the world. Sound is integral to the experience of this work because it adds aural sculptural form and immerses the viewer in the visceral act.
