Garden Fresh is a photo series by Agan Harahap:
“Garden Fresh series investigates the shifting boundaries between humans and animals in today’s environment and the complex relationship between art and nature. It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in conﬂict with their natural habits and habitats.”
“For the creation of these works I cannibalized my clothes: I used fabrics and textures to conjure flesh, bone gristle and slabs of fat in life-size sculptures of livestock carcasses. My intention is to confront the viewers with the real and grotesque nature of violence, offering a context for reflecting about the vulnerability of our physical existences, brutality, poverty, consumption, and the voracious needs of the body.”

Francois Robert spent hundreds of hours to create this artwork. He purchased a human skeleton in the mid-90′s, during an auction from an old school and he called this work Stop the violence.
