Shot during the concluding chapter of Eloise Fornieles’ performance trilogy, these images are the visual recording of a 72-hour hunger strike during which the artist wandered through a room filled with discarded clothes, guarding over an animal carcass. Addressing topics of mass-consumption, violence and the way our basic needs have a lasting impact on our environment, these limited edition prints are the beautifully dark and lasting impression of this epic work of art.
Eloise Fornieles is an Anglo-Argentine artist represented by Paradise Row gallery. After a BA in Fine Art at Kingston University, Fornieles graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art in 2006 with an MFA in Fine Art Media.
Her work engages with the themes of loss, intimacy and the relationship between beauty and violence, using photography and video as an extension of her work in performance and installation. The artist lives and works in London.
