Curated by Franziska Rutishauser
The term devour (and particularly fressen in GR) goes beyond mindless consumption. It encapsulates excessive production, particularly food, on an industrial scale and an excessive behaviour exclusively known only to mankind. Many exploit resources, among them even other people in order to gain property and wealth.
This third sequel to the exhibition Fressen (devour) finalises the trilogy curated by Franziska Rutishauser which started with the exhibitions Sex (2019) and Mortality (2020).
On display are various forms of art; from photography, sculpture, installation, material art, and drawings to videos. Each manifestation has been created with the concept of devouring, be it an emphasis on surplus, waste, greed or simply an addiction.
