'Meat' exhibition explores struggle between life and death
Meat has been a central component of cultural life for millennia, a highly symbolic source of sustenance, and sometimes evil, that reveals the transition between life and death. In addition to contemporary artists such as Vanessa Beecroft, Christian Jankowski and Bruce Nauman, archaeological, ethnological and historical art objects ranging across 5, years of human history are presented in an effort to understand our relationship to meat. The general, single-word title for the exhibition was deliberately chosen to leave it open to interpretation, to raise questions instead of giving answers. The meat theme was classified into three sub-concepts, namely food, cult and body. It is through these ever-intersecting realms that humans negotiates their relationship to flesh. The subject of meat as food is taken up via diverse objects.
