Katharine Meynell is a founder member of the Women’s Media Resource Project.

These works were shown in the exhibition Abstract. Still life. Portrait at Kettle’s Yard in 1992 and accompanied the artist’s Eat video. According to M. Benjamin, “She uses the symbolic power of food to contrast the rituals of cleanliness and formality that attend the preparation and display of food, evoking images of the protective mother, with the taboo connections between food, flesh and contamination.”
