Piercing through skin to reach bone in Form Cannibalism at the The Stable, Mar 24 – Apr 30

, 21 March 2017

The Form Cannibalism group exhibition is on at Waregem’s The Stable, opening March 24 and running to April 30.

The show features work by Aline Bouvy, Joachim Coucke, Olga Fedorova, Indrikis Gelzis, Erin Jane Nelson, Anna Solal, Cleo Totti and Tom Volkaert.

In an exploration of the parallels between artist and cannibal, the exhibition references Bill Shutt’s thoughts in Cannibalism: A perfectly natural history (2017) where he researches human consumption over the centuries. Piercing through outer layers to reach flesh and bones, each artist reflect in one way or another “the current state of the body” and “leaving nothing untouched” in the research of their subjects.
