Collaboration : Stepping out of our comfort zone
Collaborating with a fellow artist, we wanted to highlight in a visual way, animals as meat. This was a performance piece and we went out into a busy area to see how people would react to how we were dressed up as pigs.
As a society, we can choose not to acknowledge that bacon is from a pig and veal is from a calf etc. so we thought if we were dressed up as pigs – covered in bacon, then it would open up a discussion for the viewer. We felt that this had more of an impact on the public than images on a leaflet.
