'Humane slaughter'

(2019- ongoing)

‘Humane Slaughter’ appropriates the carefully crafted term used by the food industry to describe the compassionate, kind and gentle slaughter of farmed animals that together with agg-gag laws aims to help consumers deftly avoid ‘aesthetically offensive’ practices. Mixing illustration and photographic images, ‘Humane Slaughter’ depicts industry standard and widely used tools carefully designed for both the paradox that is a compassionate slaughter and an optimum cost/profit ratio.
