At the 2017 SPRING/ BREAK Art Show, artist David Henry Jr. created a culinary "tableau vivant," using his body and face as a canvas for exploratory food art. David begged the audience and his two co-performers to force-feed him as he sat immobilized inside a table covered in a buffet of vegetables, deli meats, and various unappetizing junk foods. The performance and its simultaneous transmission via social media created a messy, disturbing commentary on American over-consumption and our neurotic love/hate relationship with food.
