A Feast For The Both of Us


15th - 18th April 2021

In Collaboration with Emma Wilson

Creating situations that turn passive onlookers into active participants. Blurring the dividing line, artists Emma Wilson & Eliza Brady bring together a synergy of narratives around food & foxes.

Eliza Brady
Food plays such a dominant, even defining, role in any class system. In light of the pandemic, food has highlighted disparities within society. A dinner can be a scene of civilised harmony, but it can also be a dividing and divisive tool, revealing tensions that poke at hierarchical systems that often mockingly depict the inner problems of society. Brady uses sound & visual depictions from pre-existing films to illuminate these disparities. Here food is used as a tool to fuel eroticism & debauchery.

Fully immersed by the overwhelming senses in Brady’s sound art and film essay. The audience may be mesmerized into forgetting the hollow eyes of the pretty pests that tentatively surround them with quiet apprehension.

Emma Wilson
Lulled into a false sense of security during this last years ‘new normal’, Wilson paints a tale in homage to the king of our streets, while suggesting an eerie sense of familiarity in this new narrative. Wilson has admired, envied and obsessed over the life of the creature at the bottom of her garden. Curated by dreams and encounters with her own neighbourhood fox over the past year, Wilson imagines a night in their shoes. Roaming through gardens and streets, her fox remains blissfully and dangerously unaware of man’s rule book as events transpire.

Behind these bright and playful paintings of perceived self-rule, we are reminded that this predator is held on our very long leash, which we keep an uncomfortable lazy eye on. While we have shut our doors, the fox has enjoyed a short-lived solace of freedom and power. But as the balance tilts back to the humans, here’s one last hurrah for these observed creatures to watch right back.

There is a simmering tension between these two interfering works, broken on occasion by an intervening audience. Building layers through the space of excess and yearning, prey and predator, the food chain. ‘A feast for the Both of Us’ is a fight for the dinner table.
