The Gut Feeling

Manca Jevšček: The Gut Feeling.
The series of images explores taste and appetite in relation to animal meat.

Living in modern societies forces us to face certain decisions at every step. And food, as mundane as it is, is long gone from our instinctive cravings and survival decisions. In the time when our diet can represent a moral and political stance, we still find ourselves faced with a simple existential dilemma: Is it edible? Would I eat this? With the rise of vegetarian and vegan diets, meat has become the bone of contention. The series of images explores taste and appetite in relation to animal meat. What is tolerated as representation of ingredient, and on the other hand a cringe worthy representation of death? The dual representation of raw meat from farmers markets to estheticized food styling of restaurant dishes, both tread on the thin line of what is appetising and emphasise the question of that moral/ethical dilemma which comes with the consumption of meat.
