This has got nothing to do with art or animal welfare. No one who is genuinely concerned about the lives of sentient creatures could abuse animals in this way. She says it is art, well no actually it is animal abuse and obscenity. She also says it is to raise the subject of double standards between attitudes towards farmed animal for consumption and that of pets. Personally I think this is more to do with the expression of a sick and cynical mind; but then that is just my own opinion and I leave you good folks to arrive at your own. YOU DECIDE! PEACE, RAVERNSKEEPER,
This woman Katinka Simonse from Amsterdam kills animals and calls it art
In 2004, Tinkebell gained national notoriety in the Netherlands with a handbag she fabricated using the fur of her own house cat. She indicated to have killed the animal herself, by breaking its neck and skinning it. The goal of this work was to raise the question why it is accepted in society that production animals like cows and pigs are killed for consumption, but doing the same to pets is not. According to Tinkebell, the cat, aged two, was depressed to the point where it could no longer be left at home unattended., in 2012 she explained this was a made up story to raise attention for her opinion about the different threatment of pets compared to other animals. She claimed the cat was actually very ill and would die of its disease. In June 2007, formal questions were raise in Dutch parliament by the Partij voor de Dieren because of a Tinkebell project. During an eco-design fair in Platform 21 in Amsterdam, she offered people to buy 60 male live chicks or otherwise dump the chicks into a shredder, to show how male chicks are treated in the bioindustry. In early 2008, Tinkebell again became a topic of conversation due to the exposition Save the pets, in which she had 95 hamsters running around in hamster ballsin art gallery Masters in Amsterdam. She wanted to show how people treat their pets. Again, her basic concept was the dual morality people maintain in respect of animals, because nobody will protest a single hamster in a ball, but people will protest 95 hamsters in 95 balls. Again she was interviewed in several newspapers and Dutch TV-shows. On 24 January 2008, the Dutch animal welfare authority confiscated the hamsters. The Partij voor de Dieren again raised questions in parliament.
On 8 September 2009 and 6 May 2010, she was tried for the case in front of the police magistrate in Amsterdam. They eventually referred the case to a Dutch court specifically for complex or serious cases. There she was tried on 7 January 2011. On 21 January 2011, the court declared the allegations not proven and acquitted Tinkebell of them
