How do we feel about food? A question as banal as it’s thorny to which twelve contemporary artists attempt to answer in this very unusual and off-beat exhibition.
Critical of our (over)consumer society, poor eating habits, contaminated foods, a shaken up food product pyramid, there are several interpretations through zany installations (a camera in a dustbin, an screen in an icebox, a ventriloquist soup container), off-beat filmed performances (a picnic face-to-face with a wolf) and photos of contemporary still-lives where burgers and donuts replaced traditional fruit baskets going back to the Renaissance.
An exhibition that feeds the mind but that might whet the appetite of its visitors!
Rush over there, it’s free.
