This piece is made to exhibit the cruelty of meat industry, and the way meat industry is presenting
animals as happy and ready to sacrifice their life to offer us milk, eggs, meat , fur etc. Aims to show
the real face of animal slaughtering and the violence hidden behind the steaks we eat. It is made from
silicone chicken dressed with synthetic plastic hair and fake blood. The supporting structure is a metal
sculpture of chicken legs.
This project was inspired by the way meat industry is treating animals, and how they are presenting their victims as happy and ready to sacrifice their lives to keep our stomachs satisfied.
Happy pigs and cows, happy sheep and chicken everywhere around us.
We breathe, they breathe too.
We walk, they walk too.
We have brain, they have too.
We have heart, they have too.
We have feelings, they have too.
We live, they die, for us.
