Work of art I would like to make

I would like to buy items of clothing from Marks and Spencer, T shirts, socks, underwear, bras, panties etc then I would like to go to Sainsbury’s or Tesco and buy jam, butter, sauce, honey etc. I would then like to take the clothes and rub the various condiments into them until they were saturated and dripping. After that I would like to display them as works of art with titles such as ‘jam pants’ etc
There is a chance that many people observing these works would find an activity like this as ridiculous or stupid but with a deeper understanding and awareness they could be receptive to the fact that the food and clothing represent the basic requirements of human survival and the work is an acknowledgement to the past when after these requirements were satisfied the artist would then draw on the cave wall.
Many of us live in a society of over abundance if our greed and excess is not curtailed then we may well be back to drawing on cave walls.
The work will be made as a performance installation.
