RelationChuteMeditations on My Slaughter Asma Kazmi 4.10 – 5.16.2009 
Relation-Chute is a platform for transdisciplinary action and the accumulation of materials, people, and ideas. By documenting her training in zabiha slaughter (slaughter in the method prescribed by Islamic law), the artist attempts to complicate the ever-growing distance between the consumption of meat, religious observance, and the reality of death. The project’s current form is a website which can be viewed here.
Relation-Chute: Meditations on My Slaughter at Boots Contemporary Art Space will focus on collapsing the distance that the Relation-Chute website assumes between a viewer and an image. The exhibit is a manifold encounter, realized through bringing a community of voices under one roof to participate in an exchange which will happen in words and beyond words, through shared inhabited time and space.
