From the Independent:

“In a huge tank of water, sides of beef and a cow’s head are suspended from hooks, brains fry in a pan, a skull sits on a butcher’s block and strings of sausages are draped everywhere. Swimming serenely around these gory visions of death are dozens of brightly coloured tropical fish.

Elsewhere, a huge black gorilla is staring at its own severed arm, the bottom half of a torso sits on a stainless steel lavatory and a family of pigs, covered in tiny beads, go out for a stroll, clearly elated that their baby has sprouted wings. Above all this floats a zeppelin made from Coca-Cola tins, and a Christ-figure constructed from Marlboro Lights cigarettes hangs from the wall.”

Emperor. Clothes. New. </p
