We love visiting Dublin's Science Gallery where the worlds of art and science collide. I recently attended opening night of Fat, It's Delicious.
The exhibit was divided up into a mix of delectable and sometimes creepy courses.
That fattiest of meats, pork, was represented by this pig's head.
Trophies of hunted fatties mocked us from the wall.
All kinds of delicious deep fried and fatty treats were being passed around as we explored the exhibit.
The most shocking exhibit of all was the soap made from human fat by performance artist Orestes De La Paz. Chunks of soap sat before a hand washing station as a video of the liposuction used to obtain the raw materials for the soap played in the background. Visitors were invited to have a go and wash their hands with the artist's fat soap.
I didn't quite have the nerve to do it...I think it was the surgery video that put me off of it but I was certainly willing to gawk at other visitors willing to give it a try. Fat, It's Delicious is another triumph at the intersection between art and science.
