The carcass of an animal can evoke a strong reaction by the viewer. The suspended carcass displaying its ruptured stomach cavity tells of a violent intervention. 

Hanging the living body, akin to a carcass, questions our attitude to the commodification of our flesh.

In this painting the subject is hung in a way to maximise extreme exposure and vulnerability, the method of hanging inspired by Francisco Goya’s Disasters of War 39 (1810-20).
