On Sunday, 9 October, 2018, at Frieze Art Fair, I bought £75 of #MarinaAbramovic and sold 1/8 of a macaron for £3 each to some friends. These were their responses. FULL TWITTER THREAD BELOW. (1/16)
Erin: Like a burrito from chipotle.
Erin & Emily: I like rosewater but don't need to taste it all day. She's a strong personality, you might expect her to stay w you all day.
Lois: Very smoky. Like Earl Grey? Bergamot? Curry? I am tasting something very spicy. What is that taste????
Tracy: Plastic. Burnt plastic. Like when someone burns their nails or their hair.
Alicia: Like a gift at Christmas when you get it and wonder why the fuck they didn't give you the £25 instead.
Christa: I am not sure I like it. I feel weird eating it. I feel weird and grossed out.
Bryony: Lemon. Lavender. Sherbet... and Ajax.
Tom: The type of perfume you get, stuck to a piece of glue in a women's magazine... and an old folks home.
Rhiannon: I'm not tasting a lot of curiosity. I don't take issue with her other descriptors, but I'm not getting curiosity.
Jessica: It's like a bad joke.
Tania: I expected it to be more solid. [a possible critique of the art.]
Vida: [no allergen information included]
