Feed People to the Pigs – A Mirror for the Pork Eaters among us!

Stroom  AVL Foodmaster 01 by Eveline van Egdom

Joep van Lieshout of Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) is “at it” again:

This summer Stroom organizes an exposition as part of a two year curriculum titled Foodprint in order to study the relation between food and the city. If you understand Dutch you can read more at Stroom’s blog Foodprint and here is their Dutch blog’s summary of the exhibition. The exhibition will run until August 23, 2009.

At the exhibition Joep, who recently sold some work – including his version of a pod hotel – to Brat Pitt at Art Basel, has reversed the “normal” slaughterhouse where pigs are slaughtered to feed the humans. He installed a slaughterhouse where humans are slaughtered to feed the pigs. A mirror for the pork eaters among us.

The photo is by Eveline van Egdom. I will certainly visit it to make some photos myself.
