Susannah Worth

Susannah Worth was born in London in 1984.

She collaborated as cook and facilitator for The Political Pop-Up Restaurant (2011), a project by artist Jonathan Hoskins which encouraged talking politics at the dinner table. She guest edited Meat Matters (2012) for the CAR podcast (listentocar.co.uk), which included Meatamorphosis, a short story about meat and prostitution. She won the Axisweb Curated Selection Prize in 2013 for Feast Your Eyes: Food in Contemporary Art. In 2014, she presented Ornamental Cookery as part of the Art Licks Weekend, which invited questions about hospitality, domesticity, social aspiration, consumption, labour and mass-production, and sought the answers in crab thermidor and chocolate roulade.

Her work has been published in The Saatchi Gallery Magazine: Art & Music, C Magazine, Christie’s Magazine, After Butler's Wharf: Essays on a Working Building (Royal College of Art, 2013) and The Immaterial Almanac (Almanac Projects, 2014).

Areas of interest include recipes, scripts, scores, instructions, food, feminism, hospitality, sincerity and generosity. Research methods include browsing supermarket shelves and growing tomatoes. Susannah is also in a band called Charismatic Megafauna, who make music that relies on working around their own bodies, skills and presence as female performers.

She is a graduate of the Critical Writing in Art & Design programme at the Royal College of Art.

Digesting Recipes: The Art of Culinary Notation is her first book.
