In 'CHEW THE FAT' ([tʃuː ðə fat] informal: to chat in a leisurely way, esp. at length), influential New York-based artist Rirkrit Tiravanija, presents filmic portraits of twelve artists:
Douglas Gordon, Angela Bulloch, Pierre Huyghe, Philippe Parreno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Elizabeth Peyton, Tobias Rehberger, Carsten Hoeller, Liam Gillick, Jorge Pardo, Andrea Zittel, Maurizio Cattelan.
The artists, all selected by Tiravanija, belong to the same generation as himself and, like him, have achieved considerable international success through the 1990s and early 2000s.
Most importantly, however, all are good friends of Tiravanija. This allows each interview to unfold in a uniquely relaxed, informal way, with conversation flowing naturally and the personal coming up as readily as questions of concept or career, as each artist 'chews the fat' with Rirkrit, their old friend and colleague.
