Don’t expect Danish photographer Per Johansen to present carefully plated dishes served up on a silver platter. Full, the latest of Johansen’s work, is a series that quite literally frames the consumed good with the harshness of the inorganic. Chicken is unceremoniously stuffed into a bottle, a single wing protruding from the neck of the container as if it were waving a white flag of defeat. Whole fish experience the same treatment, and even a long sausage is contorted grotesquely into the handle of a container. Undercurrents of criticism for a commercial industry insensitive to the organic are mixed with hints of wry humor as these photographs bring a new meaning to the “still life” genre.
