Human Puppets

Gartenlaube der Kunst
Am Bogen / Ecke Rathausstr.
85521 Ottobrunn
15.11 – 15.12.2020 – (extended until 15.01.2022)

(As part of the 1 year program titled ‘dear animal’ organised by Gartenlaube der Kunst.) ‘gartenlaubederkunst’

 
“Why do we keep some animals as pets while we eat others?
 
It’s a known fact that some farm animals are more intelligent than our favoured cats and dogs. Pigs come to you when you whistle for them and they love to be petted just like a dog does.
 
But billions of animals suffer at the hands of humans every year in the meat and dairy industry, yet household pets like cats and dogs continue to multiply at an unprecedented level and are treated in the Western world as human companions; our human puppets.
 
Unlike our favoured pets like cats and dogs the farm animal will live its entire life in an intense farming system and is unable to express its normal behaviour. Their life spans are cut short, their living conditions are inhumane and cruel and these animals are purely processed like manufactured commodities.
 
In 2019, 59.7 million pigs, cattle, sheep, goats and horses were slaughtered in Germany. In addition, 703.4 million chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and other birds were also slaughtered.

 

(source: Statistisches Bundesamt/Albert-Schweizer-Stiftung)
 
EU regulations stipulate that a pig weighing 50 to 110 kilograms needs just 0.75 square meters of space. Based on these figures and the size of this glass house I calculated that almost 8 fully grown pigs would live their entire lives inside this small and suffocating space. (266cm x 221cm)
The empathy we have for particular animals over others is such a paradox in our society today that the system continues to fail billions of animals while it favours others.
 
This absurd process comes down to a persons unwillingness to accept responsibility for their own actions as a consumer. On one hand we love our cat or dog and treat it like part of the family, yet on the other hand we consume the flesh from a chicken or a cow without even considering its life.
We need to find compassion for all animals to end the suffering of the selected few.
 
This installation represents the animals humans have chosen as their friends and companions. Made to look like an expensive marble monument to our pets I am hoping to highlight this extreme paradox in human behaviour. It is my hope, as a conceptual artist that this work makes you think more about the plight of ‘the other animals’ that humans treat in an insufferable way for their own consumption.” – Katie Jayne Britchford

2019 – film

This film was made during my residency in the north of Italy in the summer of 2019. (Longega A.I.R – South Tyrol, Italy.)

Using the vast Dolomites as the landscape,
I imagined a world where nothing living had survived;
only dry sun bleached rocks and the continuous journey
of a few lonely plastic products,
rolling and rolling,
never ending.

Winterschlaf (Hibernation)
photo project – 2018 – ongoing

Winterschlaf, the time when Munich’s public art and fountains are hibernating!

Wooden covers.
Each one individually designed to protect its fountain or sculpture.
During the freezing conditions of the winter months.
Intriguing in their quest for both hiding something and unveiling something.
And a little funny and strange looking.
An eyesore?

The city of Munich is one of only a small number of cities in Germany that build such elaborate wooden constructions to house their public art pieces and fountains during the long wintery months. For most residents of Munich these covers are almost invisible as a regular part of Munich life. But for me, as a new comer to the city, I was not able to ‘not’ notice them scattered all over town, for they have also become a sculpture in their own right; another type of statue or art piece, leaving me with the curiosity of what is actually underneath some of these strangely shaped constructions.

if i were you what would you do
Exhibition by Katie Jayne Britchford and Thomas Silberhorn

Galerie 21___im Künstlerhaus Vorwerk-Stift,
Vorwerkstraße 21
Hamburg, Germany

Opening 26 April, 27 – 28 April 2019

‘For this exhibition both artists have created individual works as well as collaborative projects. Katie often focuses her work and ideas around materials as fake and materials as matter and Thomas creates kinetic sculptures that alienate from daily objects and memories. In ‘if i were you what would you do’ Katie and Thomas have combined their often humorous and ironic work in an unusual and multi-disciplinary installation.’

‘up-close-dining’ 2019, projection and sound installation
(collaboration between Katie and Thomas)

‘up-close-dining’ is an interactive art piece in which the viewer becomes a participant of the projected scenario. The mirrored image is taken from a stock photo from SeaWorld in Orlando in America. This particular marine sea park offers its visitors the chance to ’dine’ while experiencing captive whales swimming around and performing with trainers in a tank. “Dive into Orlando’s most immersive and memorable family dining experience. Following your meal, you’ll get an up-close view of our four rescued pilot whales and the relationship between them and our SeaWorld trainers.” This outdated and distasteful daily event seems to celebrate humans ability (and stupidity) at keeping large wild animals captive for human entertainment. No captive animal, even considered a ‘rescue animal’ should be trained and required to ‘perform’ for human entertainment, especially not while the humans on the other side of the glass eat steak and drink wine. What kind of abhorrent scene have we created. Coupled with the actual sound track played in the marine park during the dining experience, this art piece attempts to place the viewer right into the scene to encourage thought and reflection based on their own ethical-egoism and its possible consequences.
