Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill

“New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals. If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art."

Mother hen keeps watch as her chicken nuggets feast on sauce
A female rabbit applies her make up
Fish fingers "swimming" in their fish bowl

Watch the video!

I wish i lived in New York so I could see this with my own eyes.
