Using Latin in the title of a photo project, or anything really, is a gamble; but for an exhibition that showcases a literally in-depth look at food, it’s quite fitting – after all, if the linguistically-inclined takes a closer look at our dictionary, they’ll find quite a few Latin roots. Terra cibus, which roughly translates as Nourishment of the Earth, is Caren Alpert’s innovative way of tackling our obsession with food. She uses food as lab fodder, puts it under the microscope, but not to see what makes it tick – in stead, her purpose is to have us relate to food from an artistic, intellectual rather than basic, viewpoint, and it’s less about the scientific tools she uses to create that overarching view.
