Amanda Manitach / Gallery 40


die verkehrte Welt; la monde renversé; il mondo alla rovescia:
THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.
by Amanda Manitach

If this image is what Amanda Manitach is currently obsessed with, I can't wait to see what she's been up to for her Gallery 40 opening tomorrow (Thursday).
“THIS LITTLE PIG WENT TO MARKET”

My mama had the remains of her childhood pet pig in a 16 ounce wide mouth ball jar for my entire childhood. It always remained on our kitchen bar or counter, it was stuffed with a creamy melange of rancid fat and sour striated muscle. It was the leftovers from the slaughter, a keepsake.

I am working towards recreating a diorama of baroque pork, castrating the carnival pig, celebrating the demarcation of time-interval and entropy via the metronomic holler of the open-mouthed squeal. via

What perfect synchronicity for Amanda to be living in such close proximity to a butcher. (Previous to Rain Shadow Meats' neighborhood arrival, she would hit the Market for her animal parts.) I can't wait!
