Self-Portrait as a Buffet Table: David Henry Nobody Jr.'s Extreme Food Art

3/30/2017 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments


At the 2017 SPRING/ BREAK Art Show, artist David Henry Jr. created a culinary "tableau vivant," using his body and face as a canvas for exploratory food art. David begged the audience and his two co-performers to force-feed him as he sat immobilized inside a table covered in a buffet of vegetables, deli meats, and various unappetizing junk foods.


The performance and its simultaneous transmission via social media created a messy, disturbing commentary on American over-consumption and our neurotic love/hate relationship with food.
