[performance + art intervention] Project: Food Chain
This performance and art intervention was created with the support and collaboration of Livemedia and Sorli Discau supermarkets.
Considering current systems of control such as Carnivore and based on Karl Marx’ Theory of Alienation, this work shows the human species as packaged meat.
Location: Fabra i coats – Factory of creation.
This real-time performance is based on the Abramovic Method, patented by the performance artist Marina Abramovic for the sake of “Preserving Performance Art”. The Abramovic Method can only be learned at the MAI Institute located in Hudson, USA. At MAI, all students have to stick to a specific dress code and repeat a series of actions directed by Abramovic. The performance shows me as a fictional student at MAI.
Location: Sorli Discau supermarket – La Sagrera branch / Packaged meat refrigerators.
The intervention consisted of re-labelling certain packaged meat products with the purpose of showing the human species as packaged meat.
