Takes place during Uroboros Festival 2021

A mourning ceremony for millions of pigs that have died as a result of the African Swine Fever (ASF) pandemic.

Troubled times require practices that attune us to the naturecultures we are entangled with. Through collective remembrance we will enact response-ability to this porcine crisis. In the past two years, as this pandemic spread through East Asia and Europe, well over 100 million pigs have either lost their lives directly due to the virus or been killed as part of virus suppression efforts. The exact number will never be known. Our session will navigate cultural practices of memorial and ritual, to craft a mo(nu)ment to these pigs and their relations.

This ceremony is part of the Pig response project, a curatorial initiative for practicing careful pig-human relations. It has been set up in response to the ASF pandemic affecting pigs all over the globe and works as ever-branching-off space for artistic, empathetic, research, down-to-earth porcine speculation. This response structure connects art, research and design, in an attempt to adequately respond to the loss of life as a result of the ongoing African Swine Fever pandemic. The mourning ceremony, held as part of Uroboros, enacts a social imaginary where the question of living and dying well is extended to our porcine relations.

In holding this ceremony, we hope to connect as fellow mourners, not observers. How to participate is up to each fellow creature. There will be space for remembering personal pig encounters; just being present in the space is also fine. We aim to gently draw you into a collective project of multispecies mourning.

If you would like to attend any festival event but can’t pay the fee, the organizers will gladly waive it for you, just please contact them at festival@uroboros.design.
