Artist, Curator, Their Friends, and Other Fantastic Beasts, 2019
“Any one of you can eat me up!” – says the artist. “Any one of you can eat me up!” – says the curator. “Any one of you can eat me up!” – says the chicken. In her piece, Lyudmila Kalinichenko considers such themes, as the art community, the sensitivity of artists, the roles of the curators and artists – those people who are forced into specific circumstances. The ironic phrase “Any one of you can eat me up” supposes that anyone of us can be satiated or eaten up at any moment in time.
