Commissioned by Vanessa Arelle.
Camera by Manuel Vason.



An invitation to dinner. On a dining table in a manor house on the edge of Dartmoor, I sat in
a bath of milk plucking a pheasant. I was surrounded by glass bottles, bones, hair, feathers,
wine, roses and fruit, as the bloody head of a freshly shot deer lay at the fore of the tableau.
His carcass was served on a platter and guests were invited to feed themselves. I continued
my action for the duration of the meal.
