DESCRIPTION

We inject a drop of the turbo-gene. We breed them in cages until their skinny legs snap like twigs. We bludgeon them, cut them open, we pull their guts out and slice them to pieces. We fry, boil and eat. Next! Chicken, pig, chicken, pig… Stop! An extraordinary encounter on the production line. The horrific reality of the meat industry and industrial livestock farming is projected – with the subtlety of a juggling butcher – into a simple, animated, grotesque world, hand-drawn in black. It is the time to confront the contents of our plates. After all, we, humans, are conscious, thinking primates. We can afford a little risk… can’t we?
