GOURMETS AND PREDATORS
Meat in a civilized society appears not as the dead organic matter of a former living creature, but as a hygienic quasi-industrial product which materializes under mostly unknown circumstances.
The pictorial language of GOURMETS AND PREDATORS (1996) uses the iconography from the history of painting but also plays with clichés from advertising.
To the extent which meat is shown here as an organic substance, it is also used as an artistic medium, shapeless yet formable, pliable, submitting to the will of the artist and thereby gaining an own aesthetic value.
This project of 1996 contains images taken with a large format camera Linhof, includes of 15 photographic works an Edition of 3. C-print /alu 120 x 160 cm. Some works made as an edition of 1/ digitalprint on plastic plane 220 x 300 cm.
