With Food in Mind

leave a comment »

I’m in this awesome group show at The Center for Book Arts that opens Friday, April 15.

My contribution is a four-channel video entitled “The Three-Legged Pig” and an accompanying artist book. The footage, shot January of 1998 on family farms in the Southwest of France, witnesses the respect given to the lives of pigs raised and prepared for food. In conjunction with the exhibition, I will be offering a class in pig butchery in June (details to come).

I hope to see you at the opening.

Best,
Elaine
