Digital image, dimensions variable, 2009. Created as part of the NOWHERELAND: the Paris Human Flesh Incident installation at Blindside ARI, Melbourne.
NOWHERELAND – the Paris Human Flesh Incident, was a cross-media installation exploring the story of Issei Sagawa, Japanese cannibal and minor celebrity. Combining video, installation, plastic food and surveillance technology, NOWHERELAND was a sensory study of extreme East-West cultural displacement. NOWHERELAND transformed Gallery 2 of Blindside Artist Run Space into a Parisian bedsit, a re-imagined true crime scene of what the Japanese call Pari jinniku jiken or The Paris Human Flesh Incident.
