ANTHROPOPHAGOUS BANQUET

(1994)
(site specific)

15F x 8F x 3F

12 channel video installation / wood/ tablecloth/ transparent plates/ tableware/ cups/ 12 chairs + performance

What we call "table" is in fact a tilted plan, four meters long, covered with a tablecloth held by monitors. Twelve different art videos are served in twelve transparent plates. One angle of the table touches the wall, allowing complete and simultaneous visibility of the images passing through the plates. Along the table are chairs, which are fundamental parts of the banquet as they establish a dialogue with their related videos. The chairs and the videos can change according to the place of exhibition.

The videos in the plates are about how "people eat people"  or how the life death eats the life, vortex, sex, poetry, dance, paintings, people, graphics of collected local sounds, etc

This project is in conversation with the suicide of Getulio Vargas, Brazilian President. It was showed for the first time in the banquet room of his house that became the Brazilian president museum.
