Eat Meat Raw
Established in 2009, year on year Eat Meat Raw has distinguished itself from the glut of independent, contemporary art galleries in Barcelona’s Gracia district by prioritising space for both local and international artists who explore hybrids of form, representation and a propulsion towards the grotesque.
With their exhibition and contributor archive filed under either ‘freak shows’ or ‘resident evil’, the six-strong team at Eat Meat have a sense of humour, albeit rather macabre. The critically acclaimed ‘Miroir Noir’ crystallises the ethos of the gallery and those with whom they engage. ‘Miroir Noir’ is an on-going visual project, initiated in 2007 between Bratislavan Milos Koptak and Barcelona-born Rai Escale. Together, they seek to explore the most obscure traditions of their mutual cultures and to collide the two in ways that are intentionally unsettling. Other artists who have passed through Eat Meat include Fritz Gnad, Kinki Texas and Nico Nubiola.
