Madonna of Life and Death
What Guillermo Habacuc Vargas says about it...

The artist sees the pig as an investment, a piggy bank, literally. Sporting Louis Vuitton logos and Disney princesses, Delvoye’s live pigs were tattooed as piglets and grew along with their marks. Like Cloaca, art collectors could choose to buy either live tattooed pigs or taxidermied dead ones. Buyers can purchase a pig and let it grow old on the farm. After its death, they can ‘harvest’ the skin. The pigs are not killed for their skin, but they live in order to produce the live canvas that is their skin. They are live objects of consumption as soon as the ink decorates their backs, but they can only be materially possessed after their death. Delvoye imitates the concept of economic growth by assigning a ‘value’ to the pigs. The ink drawings on their backs enlarge as the pigs grow bigger, and as their shapes change, so do their tattoos. Here, the artist deals with various contemporary issues such as the globalisation of the meat industry, the pursuit of profit and the transformation of animals into consumer goods. Unsurprisingly, Delvoye’s Art Farm has provoked strong controversy: several animal rights organisations protested and the artist was banned from art fairs for his work.

A pizza chain in New Zealand has sparked an online row after nailing hundreds of rabbit pelts to a billboard to advertise its new Easter Pizza.
To raise awareness of the smoked wild rabbit-topped dish, Hell Pizza covered billboards throughout the country in the animal skins with the tagline: 'Made from real rabbit. Like this billboard.'
Inevitably, online commentators took to social media sites to either vent their anger or defend the chain.
