Rotten Food Art


Did you know that one third of the food produced in the world goes to waste? Well, it does. And don’t just take our word for it, this shocking statistic comes from none other than the United Nations who recently commissioned a study into food waste.

Provoked by this damning report – no prizes for guessing it’s the industrialised northern nations that contribute most to this surplus food mountain – Austrian artist Klaus Pichler was motivated to make a provocative statement.

Taking an array of everyday foods – from strawberries and eggs to milk and chicken – Pichler arranged the rotten foodstuffs, accompanied by a variety of mould, fur, weevils and what can only be described as fungal matter, into something artistic.

Granted some of the expired food look like relics from Miss Havisham’s dining room, but there’s an alluring aesthetical grace to the shots. We’re just pleased the pictures aren’t scratch and sniff. Can you imagine the hum?
