FRESHLY PACKED / ALWAYS CHECK THE LABEL is a programme of live art interventions curated by Something Human, which brought performances to public spaces across various sites in London from May – August 2013, exploring themes surrounding notions of the biological, corporeal, flesh, food, sustenance and mortality.

This open call series began with American performance artist, Anya Liftig, whose work Consider the Lobster, was hosted at a community table in the heart of Deptford’s bustling Saturday market. This was followed by a series of responsive interventions to paintings that included animals at Tate Britain, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.

Next up were performances by London-based Nicholas McArthur and Robert Molloy Vaughan in suburban Brockley, and Peruvian artist Lorena Lo Pena and Singaporean artist Malvina Tan at Deptford Lounge.

Please be advised that this video contains content that deals with difficult subjects including killing of animals, eating disorders, body issues, disease and death, and could be triggering for those who have related issues.

With thanks to cueB Gallery, Deptford Community Cookbook and Deptford Lounge.
