Carnivora Domesticatus a project report

Abstract (Summary)

Carnivora Domesticatus, my M.F.A. exhibition, explores the subtle politics of food and culture by addressing, rearranging, and playing with the hierarchy of the food chain. My own feelings of displacement from nature are filtered through a quirky, idiosyncratic personal narrative in objects. This mythology has been influenced by domestic and international travel, and my encounters with place and cultural values in relationship to consumption from the perspective of the carnivore. I work with these ideas employing humor, subtle irony and the unexpected. This body of work is a reflection on the separate but unequal balance in the spheres of the plant and animal kingdoms versus human culture.
