June 2015:

www.famousartblog.com:

The Miniature Museum continues to grow! Over the last few weeks three new artists have submitted their artworks. In fact, we're very proud that Arnaldo Pomodoro, Gurt Swanenberg and Vanessa Prager have decided to make their work available. Dutch artist Gurt Swanenberg has, for instance, submitted a truly unique artwork.

Using the skull of a newborn piglet as his canvas, he has decorated it with the logos of the world's biggest fastfood chains. The relation is obvious.

Swanenberg has used a waste product of a controversial industry to make an artwork about that same industry. However, opting for a skull of an animal does not only show his fascination with our present-day consumer society. As Swanenberg has meant it, it will also remind the viewer of the traditional chambers of curiosity and Wunderkammers of earlier centuries. Of course, that makes it perfect for the Miniature Museum of Ria and Lex Daniels.
