The contemporary surrealism of Meatwreck studio
The work of the duo Meatwreck, born from the collaboration between Mitra Savory and Dereck Paul Boyle, is characterized by an aesthetically hypnotizing visual language.
Meatwreck is a creative studio LA-based, born from a photographic collaboration between Mitra Savory and Dereck Paul Boyle. In her personal artistic research she has always focused on the representation of her body as a tool able to explore space, he on the anthropomorphism of the most common objects that we use during our days. The result of the union of these two minds is the creation of a disoriented visual language, sometimes repugnant, but aesthetically hypnotizing.
At first glance, their shots will seem to you only a bad photo taken with a mobile phone probably during an evening when you have given the best of you in some bars, but when you notice the details, you will wake up from the soporific state in which you find yourself every day. Their greatest skill lies in immortalizing trivial scenes by replacing the usual objects with unexpected objects that deceive the eye for their visual and tactile characteristics. Microwaves that become windows from which to spy on the neighbors in their intimate moments, cupcakes decorated with broken glass, steps of bread climbed barefoot.
A contemporary surrealism that you will be afraid to see, but whose scroll after scroll you can not do without.
