Meat After Meat Joy

Mmm... Meat... Me hungry...

Sorry, I drooled a wee bit just thinking of about meat. What was I posting... Right, "Meat After Meat Joy". 

What is "Meat After Meat Joy"? It is an interesting new art exhibition at Pierre Menard Gallery which is located in near Harvard SQ., Cambridge, MA. 

According to the gallery's website, "Meat After Meat Joy investigates the paradoxical relationship meat has to the body. Meat combines flesh, skin, muscle, organs, blood — each with its own relationship to the body, yet meat’s only reference to the body is as a once-upon-a-time living biological thing. By putting these artists together, Meat After Meat Joy seeks to investigate the uncanny effect meat as a medium is for artist and viewer. This is not a show about meat as spectacle but about meat as signification, precisely because meat does not signify (a body) but its very annihilation".

The photo on this posting is pretty much the tamest one. Check out the gallery's website and you will be surprise to see what kind of other art works are included in this collection!

This exhibit will be running until July 20th, 2008.
