Swine was a show about appetites, and I wanted it to be red like sore eyes. The show was enveloped in a red glow from a neon sign that flickered, “She would kill for it“. Red wax petals dripped around the installation, Butcher’s Blossoms. I was an avowed vegetarian at this time, and somehow I wanted the slaughtered pig to look pretty to bits, in pink.
