In the 2007, the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, he tied him to a rope in an art gallery, starving him to death.

For several days, the 'artist' and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful 'masterpiece' based on the dog's agony, until eventually he died.






But this is not all... the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the 'installation' was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.

Let's STOP HIM!!!!!

No, id rather not. There are too many dogs nowadays. The dog was probably psyched to be famous. Why would deny another dog that oppurtunity? You're sick.

What the fuck? How is tying up a dog art? I mean, i'd understand if he was drawing him or something, but this just seems stupid.

I don't really care about animal rights, but that was a dick move. Also, not artistic so much as sadistic, and pretty stupid.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Can't people be fined for cruelty to animals? What about animal rights associations?

I heard that his country's government was already up in his **** for doing that. I don't know what an online petition is going to get done though. The guy is just sick in the head.

Well the petition doesn't work anyway.

I've read other reports that say the dog was only tied up for a few hours, fed and released, so I'm not sure exactly whats going on with this.

This has been done before. We reached the conclusion through my investigating powers that it was a very elaborate scheme.

Turns out the artist did feed the dog every night, but it looks like the dog was starving (probably was malnourished when he brought it in). This was done to show what hypocrites people can be; looking at a dog that looks like it's starving and doing nothing and the same thing is going on all over the world. Or something.

We also reached the conclusion that I'm awesome, but that's another thread.

How the hell is that art? I mean, what kind of statement is he trying to make by tying up a dog and letting it starve to death?


well, no viewers of this art fed the dog or let it go free, they easily could have at any point. I think he makes a strong statement about his own audeince and the population they represent.

Doesn't justify the act whatsoever, but it's a pretty damn strong stament.

Is this true? Seriously?

Cause if not...

erm, not to be a dick, it kind of sucks for the dog and all, but I personally consider the idea to be somewhat fascinating. Actually witnessing death right there in front of you in an art gallery. Any semi-talented artist can paint/draw a dying dog or human for that matter, but to actually stage it is a ballsy move IMO.

There's just something sad yet darkly intriguing about the whole situation.

Not to try and justify it, but the dog was a stray and was probably already starving to begin with.
