THE MOTLEY NEWS

    A GOAT LAUGHTERHOUSE

    David Shrigley’s new artistic creation was housed at DESTE Foundation, once known as the Slaughterhouse, on the island of Hydra. Laughterhouse is a presentation of a documentary film about goats whose cries sound like those of human beings. It is amusing to behold goats making these sounds and it is intended to be a funny film. However; slaughterhouses are not funny places. Particularly if you are a vegetarian or a goat. The contradiction between the comedy of the film and the history of the site is the motivation behind this artwork. The exhibition was housed at DESTE’s Project Space on Hydra island between June 19 and September 30, 2018.
