“Meat” brings together more than 500 Olivier Pin-Fat’s photographs, and 2 of his texts: one about the project and context of “Meat”, the other, about his approach to photography.
As an invited artist displaying his very personal view on the project, the book comes with an entr’acte by Brad Feuerhelm: “The Bleach at the End of the Bottle Tastes Just as Nice”
In Olivier’s words: “Brad’s text spins my work on its head, then spins it in the opposite direction simultaneously whilst raising questions about how we look at or read images, what porn is or not, where the fine line between the gratuitous and resonant lies, where placement really is, what is real or isn’t, what is art or isn’t, what direct and unsentimental representation can mean through the eyes of certain practitioners,
what mirrors what (violence, to the negative/ material) or vice versa [...] It runs in parallel with my work, although at a tangent, and in
the end elevates it. Much of the conversation pieces btw are Brad and i chatting on messenger.”
