Torch Gallery supports Katinka Simonse, a would-be artist who horribly murders animals and calls it art. It is immoral and illegal to torture or kill animals in most of the EU to my knowledge, why should this be condoned in the name of so called Art? link

Horrendous. Why is animal abuse not illegal and punished in Holland? Sick, sick, evil, cruel hateful people involved in this. How can they look themselves in the mirror without seeing an ugly murderer for money. God forgive them, I never will.

Noted. This woman needs to rot. Art is suppose to be beautiful and enjoyable. This is abuse of the worst kind. She needs serious help in a psycho ward and throw a way the key. God Bless all the animals that have lost their lives due to this trash.

Put her in a dark cell with Luka Magnotta.
And the fact that there is money being made off a book of the hate mail she's received just adds insult to injury

Oh Snap, i forgot to mention that i recently received a series of those cutesy kitty photos all over the net.
This one had photos of cats sleeping in awkward positions, with captions added.
There was one of a white kitten totally stretched out sleeping on his back on what looked like a bed.
I had seen it on a couple of fb pages as "cute", but i just found out a few days ago it was dead, and one of this POS's "creations".

I almost sent it to someone a few weeks ago myself!

So if you come across it, please tell the person who shared or posted it the true origin of the photos most people do not realize it..

If Ms Simonse considers murder as art, why doesn't she just go and kill herself and make a BIG last work for her exhibition. &%&*^(O*&!!!!!!

this is one ofe the most horrible and, at the same time, ridicoulous things I' ve ever heard, if arts justifies such actions I can wake up tomorrow morning and go around killing and abusing a baby, my neighbours, a person I ' ve never seen before, it is ok. as long as my performance happens in a museum or a theatre, for art' s sake... Let's be seriuo, because this is a very seriuos matter: she is a mad, sadistic, dirturbed person, together with all the peoplea that have been with her as spectators or financiers, THEY ALL MUST BE STOPPED AND locked up, and the key thown in the middle of the Pacific ocean!!!

She is as mentally ill as many murderers. The "Art" thing is just an excuse to do what she loves the most and it's torturing and hurting living beings. She's probably a child abuser also. I just hope something bad will happen to her. She is mentally ill and just need to disapear...

Petitions aren't enough. I suggested to the author she provide contact info for the authorities in the Netherlands as well as the contact info for the Netherlands tourism bureau. We got them to stop reindeer farm cruelty last year....we can get this idiot to stop, but petitions aren't enough. I posted a petition on this piece of filth two years ago and she's still going strong. The EU president also needs to be contacted....this is an international violation.
