This Little Piggy

Elaine Tin Nyo

This Little Piggy will explore mankind’s love/loathing relationship to swine. With local breeders, the artist will adopt five piglets in ham-producing regions of the world (Italy, Spain, France, China and the U.S.) and follow them from stable to table. Each pig’s life, documented by video and celebrated in a cookbook, ends in a dinner cooked with local chefs. The project culminates in a multichannel video projection of these meals.
