Princess Diana Hair Occult Jam
April 20, 2012 by staff
Princess Diana Hair Occult Jam, The creepy condiment, called Occult Jam, is available at a surrealist art show in London for £5 a jar. Maker Sam Bompas, of catering company Bompas and Parr, says the preserve is “both art and food”.
He claims it is made by infusing a tiny speck of the late Princess of Wales’ hair with gin, which is then combined with milk and sugar.
It creates a product with a taste resembling condensed milk.
The hair was bought on eBay for $10 from a US dealer who collects what he says is celebrity hair.
Organisers of the art show at London’s Barbican Art Gallery, which includes exhibits by Salvador Dali and Rene Margritte, asked Bompas to come up with a product in the surrealist theme.
He reckons the bizarre jam provokes people into thinking about food marketing and how language enhances the everyday eating experience.
He said: “We thought about it and the most mundane food of all is jam. So we made it a surreal object.”
Bompas’s past projects includ a banquet consisting entirely of gelatine moulds shaped like architectural landmarks.
In another, he gave audiences at a screening of Peter Greenaway’s film The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover scratch-and-sniff cards that evoked smells from key scenes in the movie.
