10 Minute Exit was an exhibition of new work exploring some of the issues relating to the farming of pigs for meat.

The installation of sculpture, video and sound work investigated the social behaviour of penned pigs, on the farm and in the abattoir, three weeks prior to slaughter. Using playful animation and children’s nursery rhymes the exhibition looked at our perception of pigs as animals and food in a mass production farming system.

This body of work was developed in collaboration with Elizabeth Genever, Animal Behaviourist, Cambridge University.

10 Minute Exit was commissioned by BCA Gallery in collaboration with Wysing Arts.
