'The Pig That Therefore I Am Exhibit'

 

Miru Kim, a creative artist, is doing an art exhibit at Art Basel Miami called ‘I Like Pigs and Pigs Like Me’ as part of her series, ‘The Pig That Therefore I Am.’  Even though she’s a germaphobe, she undergoes this art performance where she spends over four days…104 consecutive hours to be exact…with pigs, bare naked.  She was inspired to do this after reading French philosopher Michel Serres’s book Five Senses: A Philosophy of Mingled Bodies, which explores the characteristics of skinKim became intrigued by pigs from pig dissections as a pre-med at Columbia University.  She noted that pig eyes are very similar to human eyes, more so than domestic pets like cats and dogs.  Kim notes that eye contact with pigs feels both strange and familiar because of this similarity.  Live performance in bare skin conveys a sense of touch and closeness that is difficult to express with pictures or film.  She will be with the pigs from Wednesday to Saturday, day and night.

    Great to see someone who goes outside the box to see the similarities between humans & animals. So awesome to see a such a artistic view on the comparison between human eye & pig eye. Love the post & great to see a cool view on pigs.

    Little weird. Sure if you really wanted to get hits for your blog you could do something similar and your “exhibit(s)” would blow hers out of the water =P

    Interesting side note: pig heart valves are used as artificial heart valves in people
