Spinebone Soup and Stuffed Rabbits
The multimedia project ‘Spinebone Soup and Stuffed Rabbits’ addresses food through the lenses of hunger and overconsumption. The project employs a biopolitical approach to historical periods of conflict, studied in tandem with a contemporary ideological understanding of lifestyle, fashion, and well-being. It is implemented via performative video, photography, and installation. These media connect discourses of alimentation to spheres of language and memory through experimenting with different aesthetics of representation.
I am interested in how problems of language and communication function through processes of stereotyping; their enclosure into aspects of politics and economy; their operation in memory registers; and how these interconnect with problems of veracity and reliance. I research the phenomenon’s existence and habitude, relating to both verbal and visual languages, specifically seeking non-verbal manifestations through a body and its affects.
