An artist is preparing to exhibit pigs

tattooed with Louis Vuitton logos

and designs in China.


Wim Delvoye, a Belgian living in Beijing,

raised and tattooed eight pigs himself – 

two of them with LV artwork, reports

People’s Daily.

The Shanghai Exhibition Centre has

agreed to put the pigs on display in a

temporary pig pen for the upcoming

2008 Contemporary Art Exhibition, 

on condition the pigs don’t create

an unpleasant odour.

Mr Delvoye imported piglets

from Europe for the project, 

which he calls ‘Art Farm’, 

and tattooed them when they

were still small.

“Seeing the art pieces growing

along with the pigs was an amazing thing,”

he said.

A spokeswoman for the New Beijing Gallery

said the live pigs were not for sale, 

but their skins would later be sold

for about £60,000 each.

During the exhibition period,

 strong sunscreen lotion must

be applied to all the pigs to avoid

their getting tanned in the open air,”

she said.
