The Order of Autophagia: The supper of terror, the lunch for the uncanny, unapologetic snacks on the apocalyptic moment.

This event has now finished. Keep an eye on our socials or subscribe to our mailing list for documentation of this amazing work. 

The Order of Autophagia is a midnight dinner party, inviting you to consider a perspective on cannibalism that speaks urgently—and with dark humour—to our times. Could the practice of autophagia, where humans self-cycle their energy by eating themselves, challenge our culture of overconsumption and waste?  

In this anarchic digital experience, celebrated artist Natasha Tontey challenges colonial assumptions about cannibalism and offers a speculative way of thinking about anthropophagy, posing radical solutions to our ecological problems and our bad habit of consumption. In homage to Grand Guignol—the gruesome Parisian realist theatre of the 1890s—Tontey creates an immersive digital world and invites guests to attend her performative midnight feast. You are invited to dial in (and dine) from your own home, in costume, on faux cannibalistic recipes as you enter The Order of Autophagia.

The Order of Autophagia: The supper of terror, the lunch for the uncanny, unapologetic snacks on the apocalyptic moment, by Natasha Tontey, is a participatory dinner hosted on Zoom by the artist.
