Palatable by Solange Leon Iriarte

£4.99

Palatable opens with the line "There's a man hanging from the back of my sofa" and goes on to explore the artist's relationship to the creatures she draws, paints, and eats. From art to fish fingers, nose-to-tail cooking to the thrill of discovering Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights, Solange Leon Iriarte's chapbook is an unsettling, thought-provoking and generous piece.

"I wanted to understand how butchering and skinning the animal would affect my experience of the food itself. The children's reaction to my butchery surprised me. I thought they would shy away, but the blood excited them. They ran around the kitchen like hounds after a scent, attracted by a mixture of curiosity and disgust. They were itching to see how I'd cut this animal, how I would transform it magically into food." [extract from Palatable by Solange Leon Iriarte.]

Printed on 110gsm Bond paper and 350gsm silk card in England.
