The exhibition presents a chronological narrative from soil to table. Beginning with seed germination and photosynthesis, moving through to consider agricultural and industrial labour, food preparation and fine dining, the exhibition culminates in a reflection on taste, class, objectification and spirituality.
As well as Fitzpatrick’s own painting and sculpture, Alpha Salad includes the artist’s curated selection of works from Leeds University Library Galleries and Special Collections, including work by Wendy Abbott, Duncan Grant and Käthe Kollwitz, in addition to photographs from the Leeds Archive of Vernacular Culture.
