Talvihorros – Eaten Alive

Talv1

“To hold as ’twere, the mirror up to nature; to show time his form and pressure.” – Shakespeare

………………….

If art is a mirror held up to nature, ‘Eaten Alive’ by Talvihorros is art that reflects the worst of human nature: eight interrogatory pieces that explore manipulation, addiction, betrayal and the fight-or-flight responses of shame, guilt, anger and fear.

Ben Chatwin’s two-year collaboration with Dan Crossley delivers an 80’s East London minus the current urban tropes, the two finding their coexistent aim in confronting a post-industrial fluxus of identity and rehabilitation. In mapping their shared personal histories of redemption, Chatwin and Crossley sketch details of crime, homelessness and desperation that words cannot do justice to.
