Storyline

Shot as a series of fragments by Belgian-born artist and sculptor Marc van den Broek, this six-minute art film resembles a retrofitted tale of Faust. Essential elements of humanity - the written word, the human body, music - are clasped and reduced to mechanical function by van den Broek's eerily beautiful sculptural restraints, strapped first onto a hand, a leg, head, finally an entire body. Hooks and eyes in the bowels of a warehouse reflect a fragment of binary script and double up as industrialization's invitation to mass consumption. Ancient songlines metamorphose into the hum of drones. Van den Broek's thesis is that the age of Renaissance is over, the promise of individualism depleted and humanity holding on by a slender thread. #MEAT provides no easy conclusions or answers.
