Chris & Adam Levett
Appetite for Distraction
Mixed Media Installation
21-25 SEPT, Quartiers POP, 2nd Floor South Side
The Levett Brothers are a) a boutique research firm for hedge fund investors b) Brooklyn artisanal chocolate makers c) a Montreal hot dog company. The answer is actually artists/videographers/photographers. Brothers Adam & Chris Levett have created a dual space video installation that incorporates photos, and sculpture. The videos will be delving into the dark and sometimes funny world of internet fetish eating. The sculptures will resemble large plush toys with genitals made from food that will degrade over the days of the festival. Let’s hope for a heatwave! Dealing with the connections between food and sex, ephemerality of desire and of organic matter, and the ever increasing status symbol of higher end food for the rich. That being said the employees of Whole Foods are really nice, they put elastic bands on your eggs and ask if you want your Vitamin Water outside the bag if you want to drink it on the way to your car.
