Borrowed Prey is an investigation of our relationship to the animals that most of us consume. Bringing together 4 strands of research: hunting, butchering, and slaughtering of animals, plus the work of animal behavior scientist and autistic Dr. Temple Grandin, I am attempting to illuminate more about the true “farm to table” process and our human capacity for empathy.
Borrowed Prey is made possible, in part, through Project: Space Available, a residency program in Seattle and The Field’s Artist Residency program, supported by the Lambent Foundation Fund of the Tides Foundation. Carrie Ahern Dance is a 2011 NYFA BUILD grant. BUILD is made possible through the generous support of the Booth Ferris Foundation, the JP Morgan Chase Foundation, the Lambent Foundation and the Harkness Foundation for Dance.
