This project investigates and explores the area of the butcher profession and meat industry and its contemporary social significance. Due to the industrialization of the meat produce and the chemical modification, the demand for quality meat from small producers has started to make a comeback. The rise of locally raised meat, and the popularity of so-called off-cuts is causing a rise in the butcher shops. When I spoke to a few butchers about their profession, they spoke of their trade as craft. They all have their own way of cutting meat and in my work, I wanted to represent butchers as artists. I also wanted to aestheticize the meat and show it as art.
