Unnatural - Natural History, Bristol

"Finally, as a lifelong vegetarian I had to admit to being worried by the inclusion of Geza Szollosi’s Cows.I don’t think it’s right to chop up animals in the name of art. But the Cows are actually among my favourite pieces. Pretty much everyone viewing the show will eat meat, wear leather, or consume animal products to some extent. Many common art materials contain bits of dead animal. Leaving the animal in recognizable form is not worse, and for me at least, Szollosi’s artworks posses an honest message." by Penny Tristram
