Gut Instinct: Art, food and feeling

Gut Instinct draws on cutting edge research to explore how digestion relates to our mental and emotional states.

Artists: Marina Abramovic, Sonja Alhäuser, Domestic Godless, Elif Erkan, Fiona Hallinan, Siobhan McGibbon, Abigail O’Brien, Thomas Rentmeister, Neil Shawcross Curated by Chris Clarke, John Cryan and Fiona Kearney in association with the APC Microbiome Institute, UCC Food has long been the subject of works of art. In recent times, artists have also examined eating behaviours and the mechanisms of consumption as a way to comment on contemporary society. From artworks that explore the materiality of foodstuffs to creative provocations that test the boundaries of good taste and revulsion, Gut Instinct: Art, food and feeling draws on cutting edge research by John Cryan, Professor and Chair, Anatomy and Neuroscience, University College Cork, to explore how digestion relates to our mental and emotional states. Gut Instinct features a curated programme of events including a public symposium on art and food on 25 February 2017. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue.

Gut Instinct: Art, food and feeling is supported by University College Cork, The Arts Council Ireland, Science Foundation Ireland, and private philanthropy through Cork University Foundation
