Vicemag hat Avril Corroon besucht, die Käse aus den Schimmelpilzen von den Wänden überteuerter Wohnungen in London züchtet. Sie hat mittlerweile noch mehr Käse gemacht und sich dabei eine Lebensmittelvergiftung zugezogen. Das Zeug sieht zwar wie der lecker Camembert in meinem Kühlschrank aus, ist aber hochgiftig. Großartiges Projekt!
How toxic are we talking?
I don’t know officially because I couldn’t afford to get the cheese tested in a food lab, but I’ve given myself some food poisoning in the past just from touching it and not washing my hands properly. Maybe I touched it and had a drink of water, I think. […]
does each toxic cheese block come from a specific place?
This one’s from Camberwell; the people who live there are called Rousa and Jasbo, both friends of somebody I worked with. They’ve been living there for seven years and have been having mould problems for a lot of it. It was growing underneath their bed, so I swabbed it from there. […]
These guys here [the New Cross Caerphilly and Brockley Blue cheeses] look particularly abhorrent
Yeah, they are melting throughout the day. I don’t have this fridge plugged in, so I’m letting them fester. The finished cheeses are quite abject; ill bodies representing the house that they’ve come from, as if the house is ill. I wanted that one to go in the corner because it looks exhausted with itself: dilapidated and falling apart.
