Abstract (English)

Wawzonek provides descriptive analyses of works by three contemporary Canadian artists in an exhibition based on the theme of the moralistic still-life genre known as Vanitas. The author draws attention to how these works differ from traditional Vanitas. Relationships between food/identity and consumerism/selfhood are considered, along with issues of representation, death, desire and disease. List of works. Biographical notes. 4 bibl. ref.
