Horny, 2011 cat katty vandenberghe. Art paper digital print.


A response to a call for work addressing the alarming increase in Rhino poaching in South Africa. My parents live alongside a small nature reserve where a Rhino had been brutally slain for his horn. The shock of such a blatant act in daylight, in such a developed area, gave an indication of how ruthless and fearless these poachers are, and how little regard or respect they have for our wildlife and local law enforcement agencies. I took this event personally, and used the opportunity to vent my rage.
