Artist Contribution: Hazel Alger

When I created the original artwork, as an eight-piece installation telling the brief tale of a meal in progress, my aim was to explore themes of tradition, complacency, and giving non-human animal exploitation a physical identity. Viewing it now, however, it invokes new and different thought processes in me.

Revisiting the piece two years onwards, rather than further delving into my thoughts on it’s original intentions, I’d like to offer it to the audience solely as a thinking point.

In my opinion, whatever you find in it, whatever it makes you ponder upon – if anything at all – turns it into a brand new work, as much yours as mine. In essence, make what you will of it.
