Shahar Livne – The Meat Factory

ONE WEEK ABOUT Like Leather by Leonne Cuppen

When an animal is being industrially slaughtered, its blood is being drained. Later, industrial food additives are added to the meat to make it attractive again in terms of texture, colour, aroma and taste. Shahar Livne turned this around and designed a kind of imitation leather made of bioplastics based on food additives, with blood as a colouring agent. In this way she wants to emphasize the contradictions in our thinking about food and food production.
