Mystery Meat?

Regular price $10.00

Mystery Meat? is the seventh and latest zine from Lazy Mom, a collaboration between Josie Keefe and Phyllis Ma, whose beautifully staged images of food seem to awaken in the viewer some morbid curiosity. A pink rose with cold-cut petals of ham spiraling around the bud, a roasted chicken impaled with lit birthday candles spelling out the word “BREAST,” pizza mandalas, a heavily mayonnaised foot between two slices of white bread, birthday cake hot dogs, and a jalapeño tenderly caressing a banana are among the oddly transfixing horrors featured in this installment. The lighting, composition, and staging of these culinary monstrosities invite just as much as the subjects themselves repel.
