Artnet Article by Benjamin Sutton:
One of the most memorable works from British street artist Banky‘s New York City “residency,” the meat company truck filled with screaming plush animal toys dubbed Sirens of the Lambs, has hopped the pond and turned up in the UK at the Glastonbury music festival, the Telegraph reports.
According to the artist, the piece’s British version—which is being driven by a man in farming clothes and features a converted Somerset farm truck, after the original was impounded by the NYPD—features “25 percent more terror” than the New York edition, which first appeared, appropriately enough, in the city’s Meatpacking District.
“Is it some kind of animal rights thing?,” Glastonbury festival organizer Michael Evins asked the Telegraph. “I’m not sure about it. Our cows are actually very happy, they have the highest milk yield in the county.”
The truck is due to make appearances around lunch and dinner times throughout the rest of the festival, which runs through June 29.
