Pig is a large transparent pig. Inside it is a sign that reads: “This is a community fund. You can contribute to it if you like, and when you’ve agreed how to spend it you can open me and spend it. #ThePig”
And that is it.
Pig was conceived by Kaleider’s Artistic Director, Seth Honnor collaborating with Owen Gundry on pig’s fabrication. It has been commissioned by European partnership In-Situ, which brings together some of Europe’s most significant arts festivals and programmes. Reportedly the artwork has already been doing its job amongst the 20 strong membership of In-Situ with conversations twisting and turning about what might happen, one promoter describing Pig as ‘anything but transparent’.
Pig premiered at Norfolk & Norwich Festival from 11th to 27th May 2018, before touring internationally.
