Helena Hei-Sook Park (DK)

Helena Hei-Sook Park Work for Live Art Denmark 2010: “Slagter Grøntsager” at Samtalekøkken Slagter Grøntsager It is a cold November night in Copenhagen’s notorious Kødbyen, the former slaughterhouse district. Crouching on the ground close to a brick wall, a figure clad in black fur commits a series of brutal murders. The victims are several heads of cabbage and a large pumpkin, massacred and shredded to bits with an impressive arsenal of knives and cleavers. The pumpkin even gets infused with tomato pulp blood before its demise to make the spectacle more gorey. All the evidence, bits and pieces of veggies, gets thrown into a large cooking pot, where they are […]
