More information:

In collaboration with Educell laboratory, the artist multiplied cells from a biopsy of her thigh muscles in a serum made from her blood. The project culminated in a performance at Kapelica Gallery (2020), in which the artist ate the meat in front of an audience.For that project, Schubert turned herself into a material and resource, breaking the societal taboo of cannibalism. By misusing technology invented with the intention to capitalize on our resources, mEat meserves as a critique of industrial farming and animal exploitation, and asks for a re-evaluation of our dealings with meat, while also touching upon the ethical aspects of laboratory processes.

In the project’s framework, Theresa Schubert presents MEAT_ON_SCAFFOLD, a limited Edition print of the artist’s in-vitro meat after having been cooked in a pan. This piece of meat, which measured approximately 1×2 cm, was a leftover from the dinner performance held by the artist in February 2020 at Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana.
