Save Event: Penelope Kupfer 'Insects'

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Penelope Kupfer's exhibition Insects is a contemplative and meditative research into the concept of food through the pretext of a polemic dish: insects


Insects are a stereotypical "disgusting" food in the majority of the Western world, despite being rich and efficient in protein and ecologically superior to live stocks. They are a more sustainable option yet play interesting cultural charade games with the Western public. What is behind the culture that refuses insect food while accepting other insect-like options such as shrimp, lobster and crabs?
