These days we’re finding it increasingly difficult to realise when we’re full. Our gluttonous chops demand more and we make complaints like “that packet of crisps wasn’t even half-filled!” We’re disgusting basically. Addressing our mass consumption is Per Johansen’s latest series Mæt (Full), where plastic containers have been crammed full of everyday foods, alluding to our excessive greed and consumer mentality.
With the food out of context and against a clinical beige background, they’re grimly powerful and arresting. Although Johansen uses an array of foods including vegetables, pasta and fish, it’s the claustrophobic meats that seem most powerful with the raw mounds of flesh being so brazenly squashed into bottles. It’s jarring, gross and sublime all at the same time.
