BITE AND CHEW, 2020, digital print, analog collage, 110” x 51”

This piece is a commitment to analysing, separating, and re-integrating elements of a single photograph. How does anatomically dissecting a single photograph change our relationship to the disposable nature of product and image consumption?

This piece invites the participation of the artist’s body in separating and re-integrating every virtual piece and scrap of a single photograph. An exercise that not only explores the consumptive nature in the visual world, but also considers sustainability practices within the collage discipline itself.

Considers various symbolic concepts which circulate around the object of meat: gluttonous consumption, memento mori, mortality and human interconnectedness.
