SFAI Gala Night, 2017

AT THE ART BAR: Ecounters at the End of the World, by Supermrin and Lucien Jeanprêtre
Duration: 20min
Body walks in shallow pool of dried ice carrying a bowl of pigs blood. The blood is poured over the body as subject baths itself with it. Once the blood is entirely poured and completely bathed, the body steps out of pool and removes the blood with white towels. Body folds towels, places bowl on top and walks out of the room.

The piece utilizes a palpable state of urgency through the post-industrial relationship to living creatures. Channeling the unhumane treatment of industrialized pig slaughter, its blood negotiates notions of pain, violence, trauma and death upon the industrialized contemporary body.
