This exhibition of work by Austrian artist Klaus Pichler was first shown in the context of the FAO's "Save Food" campaign.
Tracing the same path taken by that campaign, the EESC initiative focuses on the potential of food donations to reduce food waste, an aspect that has not yet been explored in enough depth.
More specifically, the EESC has commissioned a comparative study of food donation legislation and practice in the EU Member States. One of the objectives of this study is to produce recommendations on how legislation can be enacted or interpreted in order to facilitate food donation in the EU.
The One Third images portray - in unforgettable style - the connection between individual food waste and globalised food production. Rotting food, arranged into elaborate still lives, provides an abstract picture of food waste whilst the accompanying texts take a more in-depth look at the roots of the issue.
The opening will take place on Monday 7 July 2014 at 6.00 p.m.
It will be followed by a reception.
