Installation

Eat

A large projection onto the plaster wall of a gallery creates an electronic fresco. The image is a still life, a table obliquely suggesting a Last Supper formally laid with five places, each an arrangement of food and objects. A child walks across the table, playing with the food. Five monitors are suspended with their backs visible, sound and light spilling out. A single part of a larger still life is placed within the fame of each monitor over which images are enmeshed and overlaid, to form footnotes and subtexts.
