"Art" that involves torturing animals. Here, "torture" means torture, abuse and murder. a man named Wim Delvoye tattooing a clearly uncomfortable pig in Beijing: means torture, abuse and murder.

Slightly over the top.

The pigs are anaesthetised before tabooing. They live out their long, well-fed lives in luxury with full time carers. They have a better life than most Chinese.

Admittedly i find this bizarre but so to is his cloaka machine.
Maybe with his art he is trying to say something about our use of animals or art?

If you look at the picture you will see the pig is anaesthetised.
So how does it fell pain?

Strange, odd, bizarre, I admit but 'murder' and 'torture' no.

I have seen a film of the animals living conditions, food and care. All are excellent.
They are not killed for food but die of old age. A fate few pigs will have.

Thank You Avenging Angel.

My husband asked what sort of angel is Michael?
A fallen one by the sounds of it.
Justification is never the answer.

I am not "justifying" Mirella I am stating facts as I know them.
Too many Care2 "causes" are over-emotional, "shooting from the hip" reactions.
This means that when a serious issue comes up it is dismissed as 'yet another' emotional overreaction from 'mad animal huggers'.
Check your facts before you post.

Personally I think the guy is nuts.
But he does sell artificial shit at $1,000 a pop and is flat out keeping up supply.
See his "cloaka" (sp?) machine. . . so who is the nutty one?

Michael one the pig is not anaesthetised.
Two scroll down to read the full story here.
Three watch the video.

And yes I probably should have posted it a bit better.

And I'm sorry but this is abuse and torture and yeh I am a mad animal hugger!

I'm sorry the pig(s) is anaesthetised LOOK AT HIM?HER
What pig do you know lies flat on a table like that?

See if you can get this BBC documentary on the "artist" and check.

Wim Delvoye: Is this Shit Art?
Belgian artist Wim Delvoye is the world’s rudest artist and he’s made the most notorious contemporary work of art, ‘Cloaca’. This machine reproduces the human digestive system – you put food in one end, and shit comes out the other. Delvoye and other Belgian curators say he is a ground-breaking artist because he does things for real. Ben sets off to test the realism of Delvoye’s work in all kinds of ways.
His adventures lead him to China where Delvoye has a farm where he tattoos pigs as works of art. Ben decides to join in, and comes back with a work of art on his back which he gets valued at Sotheby’s.
http://www.tv2world.com/programmes/show/103

As I have said the pigs are not slaughtered. They die of old age. They have individual full time carers. they live in better conditions, and eat better food than most Chinese people.

Object to what he is doing by all means but first get your FACTS straight.

At primary school we had "comprehension" exercises where we read something and then had to prove we understood what was said. Obviously this does not happen where you guys come from.

What part of the word "ANAESTHETISED" don't you understand!!!

I do have trouble looking at videos as I am on dial-up.
But it seems to me much of the commentary was in Chinese.
I would prefer my source of information- the hour long BBC documentary I mentioned- rather than Chinese U-tube.

If I was a pig I would gladly swap my life in a Factory Farm for Wim Delvoye's Pig Farm.

anyone who would call this art doesn't really know what art is, but knows really well about how to torture and inflict pain on others.

That pig was asleep when the tatooing was done. If the pig was in pain? he would NOT have been on that table yet. You don't have to grease a pig to be unable to contain it. They are masters of escape. We raised pigs for YEARS. We notched their ears for each batch. Notching...that's taking a little chunk out. over the top ........ the only part of this being over the top is that they are tattooing a pig. How stupid.
