Meat Stacks

A Curatorial Proposal Series Exhibition

Leah Netsky

On View: October 8 –November 7, 2015

Reception: Saturday October 17, 7­-9pm

Gallery 263 is pleased to present Meat Stacks, a Curatorial Proposal Series exhibition featuring the photographs of Leah Netsky.

Emerging photographer Leah Netsky offers a symbolic look at order and mass-production in Meat Stacks, which features hundreds of meticulously arranged images of lunch meats that have been stacked, folded, hole-punched, sewn and subjected to other processes. While the content is visceral, Netsky’s playful photographs dazzle on an abstract visual level, setting up a tension between formal presentation and the content it packages. In Sewn, Netsky uses a thin colorful thread to neatly sew wedges of thickly sliced pink bologna into a stack, emphasizing their perfectly geometrical appearance. The Grid consists of one hundred unique squares of meat precisely arranged into a grid; an ode to the careful packaging and mass-produced nature of both the medium and subject at hand.Aside from illuminating the processed nature of these food products, Netsky’s photographs encourage us to expand our notion of objects as limited to their function in society.
