Preying for Modesty

Collaborating with people who conduct, or who have captured a  slaughter on camera, this project connects with rituals and historical practices of feeding on flesh. These part abstract/ documentary videos consider wider food production systems and the ethics of both eating and being animal. 

‘Outside Eden, eating means also killing, directly or indirectly, and killing well is an obligation akin to eating well.
This applies to a vegan as much as a human carnivore. The devil is, as usual, in the details.’
  - Donna Harraway
