3.’Gene Culture’ at the Slaughterhouse 73

The exhibition they closed down after 24 hours in Liverpool.

“Described as sensationalist, stomach churning, includes pigs heads (though cast and made of Latex) and squirrel remains (bones). Controversial, it sparked a debate, it was said some vegetarians and animal rights folk were not impressed. Come and see for yourself.”

” The exhibition is fascinating but I think even as a meat eater myself I would find it difficult to eat a meal in the same room. Come and judge for yourself.” Alex Corina

About the exhibition……..

“The opening of ‘Gene Culture’ was first unveiled on 09 August 2006 at the Egg Space Gallery, Liverpool, England. In less then twenty-four hours this exhibition was closed down. The show was curated by Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney, as Guest Curator invited by Headspace. Sweeney selected ten international artists from 250 submissions as far as Thailand to London. The standard of submissions was exceptionally high and the final collection of art was profound and compelling. The management group contacted Guest Curator, Sweeney, and accused her of ‘sensationalism’ by the selection of the work and stated they would be boycotted by alleged animal rights activists. It was added that the exhibition was too ‘controversial’ for the nature of the venue” Transvoyeur
