Eloise Fornieles at Haunch of Venison Berlin

January 8, 2010 by Ellie

fornieles

Eloise Fornieles debuts at Haunch of Venison Berlin to perform her installation, Carrion, over the course of three days. The piece concludes her trilogy of performances, following on from Senescence and From the Deep Waters of Sleep (both 2007).

In this 72-hour performance, Fornieles engages with violence and consumption. In a land strewn with discarded clothes stands a skeleton building in which Fornieles presides, guarding over an animal carcass. For the duration of the performance Fornieles will consume no food, while she lances the hanging meat with messages of apology collected form the audience, in a gesture that combines the protest of the hunger strike with a bowing to Western body-idealism.

Performance: 15 January, 17.00-21.00 16, 17 January, 11.00-18.00

Other Criteria recently published the first in a series of books focussing on emerging artists from around the world on Fornieles' trilogy of performances. To view it, click here.
