THE ART OF CONSUMPTION
A group show curated by Bea Rubio-Gabriel
Colour Me (2019) was one of the artworks exhibited in Bea Rubio-Gabriel's curatorial show titled "The Art of Consumption". During Colour Me, the audience were invited to color in Jessica Tanto's childhood drawings using colorless crayons with different scents. Some of the 24 scents available were leaves, orange, chocolate, men's perfume, ocean, and burnt wood.
Medium: Aromatherapy oil, wax, A4 papers and printer ink, stickers, scissors, plinth, floor pillows, pink bedsheet, wall paint.
