Exhibition of radiographs
Utställing av röntgenbilder
Vernissage 12.06 kl 17-19
“Maliciously attributing hostile intentions to food, Christelle Mas tries to see through it, like in her more playful series Aliments-dangers. She radiographs some fruits and vegetables in it, revealing the danger that we incur if we let them enter our living space. Each of them appears to be sly and aggressive: the pepper hides a knife; the pineapple, a revolver bullet and the cauliflower, a gun. The radiograph shows that food has a dimension that is normally completely unknown. This is an aspect that the human eye can only perceive with the help of technology. In the installation that shows this threat, the radiographs are exhibited as if they were going to be viewed and interpreted by a doctor: on light-boxes mounted on the wall at a certain height.”
