Chris Curreri’s intense Insomniac series of photographs features the innards of sheep, cow and pig in vivid detail. Splayed inverted, this particular animal is not easily recognizable. Captured in an unnamed abattoir in Southern Ontario, the photograph places exacting limits on figurative cues, but we can tell we are in a space of killing. Intriguingly, the piece is reminiscent of the still life of Flemish Masters in the artist’s use of rich colour and dramatic chiaroscuro. Perhaps there is also an echo of the Baroque delights of excess such as in sensuous vanitas explorations of oysters, peeled lemon or half-consumed fish, but it is here presented within a dreadful confrontation with the Real.
