Zeus Is Deeply Sad...

ART CAN KILL

You are what you read. The sentence, written with dog food, was displayed on the white wall of an art gallery. Close to that wall, an abandoned and diseased street dog was left tied to a rope and a wire string. An incense burner was placed nearby where, allegedly, crack and cannabis was burnt during the inauguration. Without food and water, the animal died in the gallery during the next day.

It happened in Nicaragua. It was an “installation” by "artist" Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, known as Habacuc. The situation, documented with several images, received a lot of attention on the web and originated an online petition against this "artist". Art cannot be the umbrella for the vandalism and, consistently, would not have that to guarantee the impunity.

Art is not cruelty!

ARTE PODE MATAR

Um artista da Costa Rica de nome Guillermo Habacuc Vargas expôs um cão abandonado e faminto numa galeria de arte. O cão estava preso por uma corda curta. Ninguém alimentou ou deu água ao pobre cão que morreu durante a exposição.

Guillermo Habacuc Vargas foi o artista escolhido para representar o seu país na "Bienal Centroamericana de Honduras 2008".

Mais absurdo: sobre o cão faminto e doente - uma parede repleta de frases escritas com ração!

Arte não pode ser uma desculpa para crueldade e garantia de impunidade! Arte não é crueldade! Vamos dar um basta nisso.

Os organizadores da exposição e visitantes são coniventes!
