a man uses a starved dog as art












An "artist" from Costa Rica, named Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, put a starved dog as a work of art. The dog died and the man was selected to represent his country in the "Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008". Petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/13031953/petition.html Dear friends, this is very cruel and sad. An "artist" from Costa Rica, named Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, put a starved dog as a work of art, the poor doggie died there, he did not want anyone give him food o water. This monster asked some childres to chase the dog and he paid them for their dirty work to give him the dog. In that event, (in which the dog died) he was chosen to represent his country in the "Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008", the petition site is to sign to boycott him , so he won't participate in the event: Please see the pictures http://www.marcaacme.com/blogs/analog/index.php/2007/08/22/5_piezas_de_habacuc (if you want you can write your opinion about this "artist" below). The emails of the Bienal to ask that this monster wont't be select to representative of his country are: bienalcostarica@ gmail.com , info@ madc.ac.cr

How can we consider this huge monster as an "artist"? Let a living being die of starvation is art?
Don't tell me that Hitler was an "artist" and the concentration camps his atteliers.
For God sake put this "artist" behind bars and throw the key away.
Let's shut all doors to his madness.
Who allowed this exhibiton should be punished as well for accepting such cruelty in the name of the "art".
Do they know what real art is?
What kind of world are we living in? A world of cruel monters?
Let's chance this.

Enviaram-me um mail sobre isto, mas não tinha visto as fotografias. São de verdade chocantes. Espero que consigam pará-lo e não consigo perceber como se pode ver nisto arte.
