Well this is ridiculously incredible. “Oh yeah I’ve just casually managed to turn some food into what looks like the seventh circle of hell.” Sure. Nadege’s absolutely one-of-a-kind artwork takes meticulous food photography to a whole new level as she transforms food and natural matter into strange grottos and dwellings. Almost resembling a John Martin painting of the underworld, Nadege’s camera takes us on a wild journey from the fruit and veg section of the supermarket to a sci-fi parallel universe.
Olivier Richon, head of photography at the RCA where Nadege studied, sums up her work beautifully: “If in fairy tales, houses are made of sweets, Nadege Meriau does the reverse, transforming the edible into a dwelling, making architectures of fibers, vegetables and porous matter. This is an architecture of the digestible, made of curves and unexpected textures, that recall the art of the rocaille, or when a grotto is endowed with a viscosity that reminds us of a digestive apparatus”
