STILL LIFE [catalog]

25.00

 

Revisiting the contemporary notion of the still life or la nature mort, ‘dead nature’ in French, I re-conceptualized the aesthetic tradition through documenting flesh in the space between pulse and plate. Outside of the play on words, the aspiration underpinning this body of work is to shed light on the socially acceptable, normative practice of animal brutality and consumption. The psychological schism in most peoples mind between the slaughter house and the Big Mac stems from a dangerous ignorance rooted in convenience and socio-economics. Our cultural norms of consumption have become the catalyst to the inhumane slaughter of animals executed on a mass scale.
