This supper ritual redefines the boundaries between the outer world and the inside of the body. In the process, a reunion takes place between man and nature to bridge a gap created by knowledge. The participants revert to a state where no names, categories or forms exist. The social norms regarding behavior are ignored and the skin becomes the canvas upon which the world is applied and slapped on. The piece is an extension of the video piece “Voracious – the body of gluttony”. With support from the Swedish Art Grants Committee.

Meat Re-Mix 
Mind and body: SU-EN
Time: 26 November 18:00–18:30
Place: Uppsala Art Museum, 4th floor

SU-EN engages in a dialogue with Pieter Aertsen's (1505/1508–1575) painting “The Butcher's Stall ” in a vegetarian-feminist protest against the motif of the image. At the same time, there is also a strong sense of affinity with the meat. Of taking delight in being a body, an organism, meat. A sense of joy at the thought of one day becoming food for another living being. The piece is inspired by the book “The Sexual Politics of Meat” by Carol J Adams.

Body, Meat and Powers
