popple catdog With her babybunnies series provocateur/artist/designer Tinkebell aims to provide an analysis of the consumptive attitude people have in relation to their pets. This latest work – an reversible cat/dog toy made from specially prepared cat and dog skin – was inspired by the Popple toys, marketed in the 80s as a teddy bear with an reversible bag (see video).

  • Wow! What is next human skin as lampshades, didn't that go out mid 40s. Do we really need to go here and anaIyse what is obvious. I collect art and buy it for others. This is so low brow and done for shock value. There is just no skill involved with this. I can go to China and buy desecrated bodies of domesticated pets. I suppose Europe is a little further away and didn't realise how readily available this kind of rubbish is. Bunny fur stitched together as a kitten has been done for years. Tacky tacky. How you can compare this to Damien Hirst is laughable.

  • "With her babybunnies series provocateur/artist/designer Tinkebell aims to provide an analysis of the consumptive attitude people have in relation to their pets." - And in my opinion, fails. As this is a mere exercise of provocation, more than anything else encapsulated in a pretentious more-than-seen concept (analisys of consumptive attitude). The difference between this provocative 'artwork' and Damien Hirst's art (which is actually more gruesome), besides the concept - which I have to say isn't that different, as Damien's works basically about the Human condition through the use of animals etc.., be these relations metaphysical, social, 'etcetera'. - lies in it's aura, it's purpose, what it had to say as an art piece. Then again, this is my opinion, and worths whatever it's worth.
