Boar Exposure Program

The dream is an involuntary act of poetry” (J. P. Richter)
As dogs, cats, horses and probably all the higher animals, even birds, have vivid dreams (…) we must admit, that they possess some power of imagination.

The boar station near Ringsted has room for 308 boars. Here they produce semen primarily for Danish pig farmers. The company has 10 branches in Denmark and sells 5.4 million semen doses per year.

Boar Exposure Program is a quadruple exposure involving humans and boars; a setting in motion of cross-species relational art production and ritualistic exchange.
