Anja Carr

Eat! Eat!

  • Anja Carr’s video Eat! Eat! (2010) is a ‘Kitchen TV-series’ – a performance-video made for the old 4:3-format TV; 7 episodes, no cuts and 41 minutes all together. In the video Carr – as a very fast anthropomorphic cat with white gloves inspired by Disney – demonstrates how to make seven different absurd dishes, with abject and sometimes sexual elements, and desperately tries to feed the viewer through the camera. It is shoot in her previous private kitchen in Bergen, Norway and in the end of each episode she drives away in her dad’s old car. The intro is based on a TV-series for children.
