CowParade Perth - 2016 Title: "A Cow With No Name"
Peter Ellis in collaboration with Paul Caporn
The inspiration for this work is drawn directly from images of horses, dogs and donkeys that were used as beasts of burden during World War I and World War II. This collaboration is an extension of Peter Ellis and Paul Caporn’s individual artistic practice and aims to encourage debate about the relationships between domesticated animals and their masters. Peter’s previous work in particular, reveals his specific interests in military logistics and the costs of war to not only humans but animals and the natural environment.
