— Capital Punishment, James Reynolds, Last Meal
China, America, Iran, Israel, and Ecuador are some of the places that do it.
Decapitation, electrocution, hanging, shooting, and stoning are some of the ways they do it.
How ever, where ever, and when ever states choose to implement the final punishment on a citizen, they have most often granted the condemned a Last Meal.
For Gallery Xue’s next group exhibition we invite artists and other culture observers to conceive and serve a last meal. Elaborate. Simple. Rich. Spartan. Whatever you discover in trying to imagine your final corporeal experience here on earth.
Compose and serve whatever meal you see fit and bring it to Gallery Xue on Saturday 1 October 2011
