Following its initial launch at the Holmes à Court Gallery in West Perth, Bread of Bone travels to the Southwest’s hot spot of fine food, Margaret River, and the Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix.
Bread of Bone features a selection of new works from five established contemporary Western Australian artists.
The exhibition focuses on such ideas as food security, different attitudes toward food, the impact of climate change on food production and supply and the value of eating locally. The artists tackle such questions as; what do we do when we can’t buy food? How do we approach children about slaughtering and preparing animals to eat? How do we promote cultural awareness and acceptance when others eat foods our ancestors deemed ‘inedible’?
Each artist’s perspective on food is explored through the staple technique of drawing, additionally considering thoughts and feelings toward modern interpretations of grinding bones to make bread.
