Into the Belly of the Beast was an installation by artists-in-residence Flavourcel, presented at Western Front on the occasion of Hallowe’en. The installation transformed Western Front into a mesmerizing haunted hall with animation screenings, performance, and live organ music presented in the Grand Luxe Hall and installed in the building’s main staircase. Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, audiences were invited to reserve a fifteen-minute appointment to tour the installation. Flavourcel zines, prints, and stickers were available for purchase in the lobby.
