Campbell's Shark Fin Soup

2012
soup can, resin, sculpey, acrylic, wood

Our piece for the "I Like Soup" exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art which opened May 2012

We sought to create a really grisly, didactic piece that is not in any way clever, but just pointing out our disgust with the practice of shark finning and the Chinese continued appetite for destruction that is pushing these amazing animals to the brink of extinction.

Sharks sculpted by Kozy, painted by Kozy and Leah. Label by Leah and Dan. Resin by Kozy and Dan with major assist from Charlie Becker.
