Laughterhouse is a presentation in the Slaughterhouse of a documentary film about goats whose cries sound like those of human beings.

About

It is amusing to behold goats making these sounds and it is intended to be a funny film.
However; slaughterhouses are not funny places.
Particularly if you are a vegetarian or a goat.
The contradiction between the comedy of the film and the history of the space is the motivation behind this artwork.

The exhibition will be on view at DESTE’s Project Space on Hydra island between June 19 and September 30, 2018.

At the opening of the project there will also be a presentation of a piece of music created using the goat sounds from the film. The performance will use electric guitars created by the artist.

In addition to this, there will be a small intervention on the tables of the cafés on Hydra: customers at these establishments are invited to season their food with “Invisible Dust” sprinkled from a specially created ceramic vessel.
