Unclean For You
Unclean For You depicts a diseased cow attempting to lick itself. The plexiglass wall both confines the cow from moving, but also blocks it from being able to heal itself. It is a quarantine, not from keeping the cow separated from others, but from itself. She is put into a position requiring human intervention, meanwhile left in a state of obvious neglect. Industry is represented by the sterile plexiglass wall, separating the whole of the animal from the engorged utters, the source of production and profit. The title, Unclean For You, goes beyond current farming practices and links a passage from Leviticus to highlight a disconnect from our ethical teachings.
