Let Them Eat Fake
The Bomb Factory is excited to present a new exhibition in collaboration with Bad Art, a group that aims to challenge the contemporary art world through transgressive exhibitions that offer a different way of interacting with art.
You are cordially invited to Let Them Eat Fake, a dinner you cannot eat but you can feast your eyes on a smorgasbord of heavenly delights.
Through exhibiting a banquet of inedible food, Let Them Eat Fake explores the culture of visual food consumption.
Whilst prioritising visual nourishment, how much importance is left on lining our stomachs? An addiction to eating only with our eyes is perpetuated through an infinite loop of online food pornography. Meals are digested through the white light of our screens, tantalising our senses but failing to nourish our bodies.
Food reveals itself as a taboo, being both pleasurable and shameful at once - an object of virtue to be desired from afar, drifting further away from the dining table and straight into the white-walled gallery.
