TINKEBELL is a Dutch artist, who provokes by exemplifying the blind spots of modern society. She confronts a public that revels in being indignant about everything that has nothing to do with them, but at the same time is very apologetic about their own actions. By turning her own cat into a handbag she tried to show people their own hypocrisy about the use of animals for consumption and leather production. If anything, her works form a extreme incentive for the discussion of our morals and the way society is developing.
Why should you listen to her?
Her actions often leave her with a lot of negative feedback. From all corners of the web people have used the relative anonimity of the internet to send her the most foul death wishes. Fascinated by the enormous anger and cruelty of these messages, she tried to find the people behind them. In her most recent series of projects, called ‘’Save The World’’, she made world saving interventions across the globe. She will talk about these interventions and explain how to save the world.
Quotes by Tinkebell
