My love of taste is rooted in viscera, deep inward feelings rather than intellect. The structures of feelings that open remind me that there is no imperative for shared taste - how does taste create structure? In the space of uncertainty proposed by the artists and writers in this show Appetitive Torque suggests embodied intellect as a starting point.
