slinkachu: worst wurst

‘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.

  • Oh the fun we have with food!
    With rats, food and dumpsters, why I tell you the fun never stops- especially for the urban poor who feast on what the urban rich cast out! (IF they don’t lock the dumpsters, that is. )
    But those pesky rat-flea born illnesses- tisk; These just take all the fun out of urban foraging for a hungry girl.

    Please flush twice, It’s a long way to the cafeteria.
