Directly referencing the iconic “Tastevin”, a shallow metal cup device worn around the neck designed to test maturity and the taste of wine and view its clarity in dimly-lit caverns, I present here Crachevin. As “Tastevin” is a literal translation of “taste wine” in French, Crachevin is a similar portmanteau meaning “spit wine.” This installation of sculpture and performance calls attention to waste and often overlooked by products of opulent activities such as wine tasting. I redirect attention from the pleasurable act of tasting to the act of spitting and disposal. One act highlights desire, acquisition, and self-indulgence, while the other focuses on the unwanted, used, and expelled. An operation that is ceremonially performed with controlled rules of conduct, wine spitting embodies a true notion of excess: tasting without consuming; enjoying then purging.
