At the Armory Show: Tony Matelli's 'Double Meat Head' [food art]

"Double Meat Head," Tony Matelli, 2008, Cast aluminum, cast bronze, urethane and paint. View larger.

We visited the Armory Show, the contemporary art fair, in New York City this weekend, and took in Tony Matelli's "Double Meat Head," a self-portrait diptych, from the Leo Koenig Gallery. The sculpture represents the two stages of Matelli's existence — the first stage signified with live, fresh meat, the second stage signified with decay, in which the flesh decomposes, consumed by maggots.
