"The idea is for humanity to be attracted by its own viscera"

With his work, Javier Pérez (previously) reveals his inquiries and reflections on mankind, using a language full of intense metaphor and imbued with a strong symbolism,” a statement says. His works contain an intrinsic dialectic, showing how weak can be the boundary between concepts seemingly opposite such as the natural and the cultural, the inside and the outside or life and death. The idea of cyclical fluctuations, circularity, temporality and impermanence are some of the artist’s recurring themes.

Wow, those are incredible!

That said, the description used such general language that I had no idea what in was store for. It might be worthwhile considering adding something to the description to indicate that there are images evocative of decaying human bodies and bloody violence in nature.

Yeah, I framed it poorly, sorry.
