Catalogue Note

“… The Self-Eaters began privately as drawings that I was afraid would seem super angsty, like bad therapy or really embarrassing expressionism, but I became interested in the way they could open up into a situation. If you took death out of the equation, they could eat themselves and then remake themselves to be any form they wanted to be. In this case the subject was a site – something that constantly produced and consumed itself. I felt like it could relate to painting, since there was so much recycling going on, but also other systems in the world” (Dana Schutz cited in: Helaine Posner, ‘If the Face Had Wheels: An Interview with Dana Schutz’, in: Exh. Cat., New York, Neuberger Museum of Art (and travelling), If the Face Had Wheels: Dana Schutz, 2011. p. 87).
