4 August - 19 September 2010. Born in 1977, British artist Jess Flood-Paddock presents her work for the first time at a major institution. Taking her inspiration from the title of US rapper Coolio's1995 hit single, the artist concerns herself primarily with exploring the links between morality, anthropology and, among other things, gigantism. Raising moral questions about what is acceptable to eat, she evokes images of a post-utopian world with her sculptures of lobsters, giant rabbits, an invitation to dinner and even some possible cannibals.
