FAMINE LARDER

FAMINE LARDER

From zelouf+bell’s Found collection, the Famine Larder is traditionally made in solid European oak, with a hand cut stencil graphic by Dublin-based artist/activist Will St Leger. St Leger shanghais the figures (based on sculptor Rowan Gillespie’s 1997 bronze Famine Memorial at Custom House Quay) by placing a bag of groceries from Fallon and Byrne (a Dublin gourmet food emporium) into the gaunt arms of one, a tiny trophy dog in the other. zelouf+bell’s intention was to create a kind of Irish shroud of Turin, the ghostly pair emerging from the wood, from the distant past of the Irish Famine and the not so distant past of the Celtic Tiger. The Larder raises questions about how we perceive ourselves; when the Larder doors open, the viewer is embraced by the promise of plenty. The emaciated figures clutching their incongruous booty disappear from view, blotted, for a moment, from our collective memory.
