Banksy | The Village Pet Store

This was  British artist Banksy’s first official exhibition in New York. A mock pet supply shop, “open for pet supplies / rare breeds / mechanically retrieved meat” as a sign said  in front of the shop. Banksy said : “I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing.”

Shown in October 2008
