This exhibition by Jean Jullien at the Colette Paris gallery takes a satirical look at some of modern humanity's odd and idiosyncratic tendencies when it comes to food.

One image shows how a rotund man, undressed and marked as livestock might be divided into cuts of meat. Each area on the man's body is stamped with the name of a different food brand. Another illustration depicts a view from above of a man sitting down to eat. Rather than food, his plate contains an iPad with a picture of a steak and vegetables.

This thought-provoking Colette Paris show by Jean Jullien skewers some of the strange habits people have when it comes to food. It exposes the oddities of the web of relationships between food, technology, commerce, animals and people.
