Pig / liberty / pink floyd / v&a
How is Pink Floyd relevant today?
The pig as a representation of the ruling class(es) has never ceased to remain relevant. Pink Floyd’s 1977 album Animals is a direct reference to George Orwell’s 1945 novel Animal Farm and the pig flying over Battersea Power Station has now become an iconic image. Our pig is a modern, shiny take on the original. Our intervention is a modern, shiny take on an inflatable pig. Beneath its superficial morphing and shifting surface, the pig is still a pig. Nothing has changed.
