Banksy's Village Petstore And Charcoal Grill

“I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming,” Banksy said in a statement distributed by a publicist, “but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing.”
How can you not love art that features singing chicken nuggets?

Like all his other projects, no one really knows if he is responsible for this exhibition. But I will go check it out. I love his work.

A weird, hypnotic video of one of the exhibits (there are more videos on that page - do check them out, particularly the one titled "Leopard"). You can also read about the exhibition in today's Times.
