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 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. There will be naps with pigs, playtime with monkeys, communications with fish, and the general exploding of the species barrier.

Kira O’Reilly, for instance, sleeps with pigs. Not in the naughty way, though some of her previous performances 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.
