Well Finished

Installation by Micki Skudlarczyk


About the Show


Installation ViewAnimals are slaughtered in mass daily without much thought by the consumer. This is especially prevalent in western cultures, where the process is purposefully cloaked & sanitized.

In the fall of 2008, Micki Skudlarczyk was awarded an artist in residency in Mexico at the Fundacion Gruber, Jez. During her time there she developed a relationship with the small slaughter community in & around the village of Cholul, where she experienced the process of animal slaughter from start to finish first hand.

Well Finished investigates the artist’s philosophical & emotional struggle between her reverence for the animals that we eat & her dismay at the pain & fear they sometimes experience at the moment of death.

Funded in part by an LIAEP Grant from the Kansas City Artists Coalition.
