Interspecies: Artists collaborating with animals

Posted By Moe Beitiks On September 12, 2009 @ 1:00 am In Art | No Comments

Sleeping with a Pig, Interspecies

Making art with animals. Making art with animals? Not animals tacked on walls. Not animals stuffed with cotton. Animals as co-creators, as collaborators. Really? Interspecies [1] says: Yes. It’s a series of exhibitions, performances, lectures and workshops examining the human/non-human relationship, and it is happening October 2-4 at A Foundation in London [2]. There will be naps with pigs, playtime with monkeys, communications with fish, and the general exploding of the species barrier.

Kira O’Reilly [3], for instance, sleeps with pigs. Not in the naughty way, though some of her previous performances [4] stare that crime in the face. For Interspecies, she’ll be hanging out with a round nuzzly buddy, and at some point, they will collaboratively take a nap. Aww.
