Kristof Santy - La Grande Bouffe
Mon–Sat: 10-7pm: Sun: 12-6pm
Influenced by a fascination with food and its history, La Grande Bouffe (The Big Feast), draws its name from the satirical 1970s French cult film directed by Marco Ferreri and explores themes of everyday gastronomy.
With an aesthetic inspired by Jean Brusselmans, Giorgio Morandi and Paul Klee, the Pop-Art movement, arthouse film, as well as cookbooks from the 60s and 70s, Kristof Santy’s practice is reminiscent of a vast library of visual references.
His latest body of work, primarily influenced by folk art and customs, iconises the simple things in life and celebrates the ubiquitous act of cooking.
