Shameless Animal Cruelty
By turgore2008 07-21-2008 08:32 PM
In 2007, artist Guillermo Vargas tied a starving, sick street dog to a rope in an art gallery and seemingly starved him to death while people looked on. He considered this his artistic masterpiece. Worse yet, he has been invited to do it again this year at the Bienal Honduras art exhibition!
The original exhibit lasted for several days, with visitors coldly watching on as the dog, who clearly needed medical attention, food, water and love-- withered away. The dog eventually died, widely assumed to be because of starvation (the gallery disputes this, claiming the dog was killed by other dogs!).
But this is not all – the Arts Biennial of Central America (in Honduras) has invited Vargas to repeat this cruelty in 2008 in his exhibition at the biennial.
My take on this:This is just as bad as raping a woman in an exposition and they call it art. If I had the power I'd crucify that guy on wall street so everyone sees and I'd write art on him with dog poo.
Sorry , I'm not an activist or anything but this is just shameless. I find animal cruelty disgusting and sickening. If you kill animals for food or clothing (?????) it's acceptable I guess. This is so wrong on so many levels...
