Bad Art Presents Let Them Eat Fake at The Bomb Factory

Alma Berrow

Bad Art presents Let Them Eat Fake opening this week at the Bomb Factory. An exhibition, a banquet of inedible food, Let Them Eat Fake explores the culture of visual food consumption.

Becky Tucker, Colin For Palissy 2021

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.

Carly Owens
Andrea Gomis

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.
