SAVOUR is a photography installation of twenty-six pictures based on a series of film stills from various movies collected by Cheryl Schurgers, in which the female characters are remarkably filmed during dinner scenes compared to the male protagonists.

While food is a well-known metaphor for sexuality, it simultaneously illustrates death and the dissolution of the flesh. Many works in art history depict young women and food to emphasize the passing time of their beauty and youth. In this series, Schurgers focused on the characteristic textures of food, but the innocent gesture of eating retains its sexual connotation.
