"Le Banquet Hippophagique" was a horse-based meal at the Art and Research Center Bétonsalon in Paris.

The project emerged out of archival and ethnographic research to map and understand the rise and current fall of horse butchery in Paris. The banquet was intended to be a platform to question which animals we decide to consume and to reveal the role economics, politics and class play in shaping the morality of our diets.

Based on address bulletins found in the Bibliothèque historique de la ville de Paris, Chloé Roubert designed placemats mapping the location of Paris' horse butchers 100 years after the legalization of hippophagy (the act of eating horse); they can be found here.

The work was presented in the context of a workshop curated by Eva Barois De Caevel.
