Eat My Fat, It’s Art

`Chilean artist Marco Evaristti presented his friends with his newest creation on Thursday night: Meatballs cooked with fat from his own body, extracted by liposuction.

‘Ladies and gentleman, bon appetit and may God bless,’ said Evaristti, a glass in his hand, to his dining companions seated around a table at the Animal Gallery in Chile’s capital, Santiago.

On the plates in front of them was a serving of agnolotti pasta and in the middle, a meatball made with the fat that Evaristti had removed from his body last last year.

‘You are not a cannibal if you eat art,’ he added. He described it as a criticism of the plastic surgery market.’

Also, images of people eating the meatballs.
