Banksy’s weird and wonderful pet store

20 Oct

Guerrilla artist Banksy has opened his first official exhibition in New York – an excuse for me to visit perhaps?! The fake pet shop aims to question “our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming”. Works include a robotic monkey, fish-fingers swimming in a goldfish bowl, and my favourite – “chicken” nuggets pecking at ketchup. It seems to be causing quite a stir around a subject that we’re aware of but tend to disregard.
