I have no reservation saying that people who treat dogs like shit in the name of “Art” should be treated like shit in the name of “art”.
Our new target is Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, who tied up a dog in the corner of a gallery. Over him was the words “You Are What You Read” written in dog food.
The dog wasn’t allowed food or water and reports indicate that he died the following day.
Just to let you know, on December 29th of 2007, I came across a small 15 pound dog on a beach in Puerto Rico. He wasn’t moving, was obviously undernourished and was yelping for attention. He was happy to see someone coming to him and was even more happy to get some water, since he was out in the sun and couldn’t move. He had been laying there for nearly a week until we did something about it. Today, that dog seems pretty happy in our home.
Hello everyone. My name is Guillermo Vargas Habacuc. I am 50 years old and an artist. Recently, I have been criticized for my work titled “Eres lo que lees”, which features a dog named Nativity. The purpose of the work was not to cause any type of infliction on the poor, innocent creature, but rather to illustrate a point. In my home city of San Jose, Costa Rica, tens of thousands of stray dogs starve and die of illness each year in the streets and no one pays them a second thought. Now, if you publicly display one of these starving creatures, such as the case with Nativity, it creates a backlash that brings out a big of hypocrisy in all of us. Nativity was a very sick creature and would have died in the streets anyway.
Excuse me? Would have died in the streets anyway? I’m pretty sure that you brought a dog off of the streets to make a name for yourself.
The dog fucking died BECAUSE of you. Here’s a video that has some photos of the dog, Nativity.
This pile of filth is going to be doing this again. GUILLERMO HABACUC VARGAS is a blog dedicated to stopping this atrocity. You can sign the petition to try to stop it from happening again in Honduras.
Fuck you Guillermo Vargas Habacuc.
