Meat Lamp 1 von Isaac Monté, 2016

Every year, tons of food is being thrown away by supermarkets, because the food expires before it is being sold. For this project, Monté re-use expired meat from supermarkets. By taking the material out of its context and reframing it he wants to create awareness around issues of waste in relation to meat production, distribution, and consumption, and to show the urgency of evolution in those practices. Expired slices of bacon get decellularized in a laboratory treatment. With this process - that is currently being used in the latest research on tissue regeneration - meat loses all its cellular content, turns transparent white, feels rubbery and gets a marble look. Monté discovered that this recycled raw material can be shaped, dried, glued, and stretched. By applying this technique he not only changes the look and shape of the meat, but above all its meaning. The meat has been treated with a laboratory technique and will not decay or mold, but last a lifetime. Keep the piece away from direct sunlight and do not expose to water.
