Poetry - Published: 28/Nov/2019 - ISBN: 9781910695937

One of the most widely celebrated artists of his generation, Ed Atkins makes videos, draws, and writes, developing a complex and deeply figured discourse around definition, wherein the impossibilities for sufficient representations of the physical, specifically corporeal, world - from computer generated imagery to bathetic poetry - are hysterically rehearsed. Written in conjunction with his solo exhibition of the same name, OLD FOOD explores mass consumption, both physical and digital, through our relationship with food. Artfully rendering humanity's insatiable appetite into pungent yet enthralling prose, Atkins portrays a world permeated with empty signifiers, replete with content yet increasingly devoid of meaning.
