Lisa Deanne Smith’s psychedelically sedative Sweet offered an intriguing counterpoint to the frenetic overload of Karma Clarke-Davis’s Trash. Equally attuned to questions of style and sensation, this installation offered a somatic white environment in which audience members were encouraged to ‘relax, recline and consume’ as the white-clad performer/hosts lolled in a 100 kg mountain of white sugar. Audience members were offered white piña colladas to sip as they lounged amid white carpeting, white furnishings, and white lighting fixtures.
