“Wurst Worst” is the latest miniature installation from London-based artist Slinkachu. Situated in Stuttgart, Germany, the work depicts a food vendor selling street meat under the storefront name “Wunder Wurst.” However, to the left of the main attraction, one notices a rat surrounded by its droppings with men, seemingly street cleaners, picking up the poop and hauling it over to the food cart for sale. Perhaps a poke at the popularity of sausage and its consumption as a favorite street food, “Wurst worst” could also be interpreted as a commentary on the general global state of public health and food safety.(via Designboom)
Slinkachu’s solo show,The Big City, opening in Ludwigsburg, Germany on 23rd October at Kunstverein Ludwigsburg, featured a combination of past work and installations as well as some new work shot on the streets of Berlin, Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg.
