“So there are no differences, then: we’re each a flesh ribbon that, due to the law of gravity, begins in the mouth and ends in the anus.” Paul Preciado, Anal Terror.

Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space presents shit!, a group exhibition organized by TJ Shin, a former artist-in-residence of the LES Studio Program.

shit! brings together eight artists whose work directly explores shit–fecal matter, poop, stool, excrement–and its charged forms of bodily engagements. As a process of consumption, ingestion, and excretion, shit becomes both a metaphor and a material practice to explore abjection, biodiversity, and transformation. Can human, animal, and plant waste offer a lens to think about our food systems, composting bodies, and global relations?

Together, the artists digest the political economy of garbage, microbial ecologies, the infrastructure of health and sanitation, and abject toilet humor.
