Abstract (English)

"In the LAB 6.4, Yvette Poorter re-contextualizes historical works of art from the Gallery's permanent collection including landscape paintings, still life, and animal figurines with her own photographs to create an installation in the manner of an 19th century salon exhibition. Invoking sociological study with an erotic twist, Poorter posits the grain-fed, free-range, handsome, healthy, urban vegetarian man as contemporary muse and object d'art. During her time on the West Coast, Poorter was struck by the quality and diversity of vegetarian dishes available." -- Publisher's website.
