I feel very saddened to see live animals being used in art. Taxidermied animals are bad enough. We can only hope they weren’t deliberately killed so they could be stuffed and used as props. It’s very depressing that “art” has stooped to this level. It speaks louder if an artist actually RENDERS the image of an animal on canvas in oils or some medium or even as sculpture in metal or plastic, etc., illustrating they actually HAVE talent!! Maybe an artist could do something REAL EDGY with an ethical or moral or political statement that they REFUSE to use live or previously live animals in that way. Get creative, come up with something that’s totally never been done before. But using real animals, alive or stuffed is pathetic and sick. That is not art.
she is not using the animal, she only film the existing hospital for horse in france…..
