ACCUMULATION – INFLUX

PERFORMANCE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY, 2009

UN-BEER SONATA

The composition of this work is politically incorrect and insulting. From an ethical perspective, these images might be revolting. Nonetheless, it comprises a reminder of how sickening industrial mass egg production and corporate farms for animals slaughtering are. When performing this piece I symbolically embodied both the butcher and the chicken itself.

 

This action was performed for photography and video and appears on the documentary Portrait, filmed by Flemming Fynsk and Lotta Petronella.
