Evoking certain aspects of « Animal Farm », the famous book written by Georges Orwell in 1945, the pig figures of Takashi Hara, in another sense of approach, reveal a lesson based on the lessons of the past symbolizing a fortiori a metaphor for the society. Since the dawn of time, Man, eager for power and authority, juggles from revolutions to revolutions, governments to governments, societies to societies. The faces are hidden behind the masks, the future is hidden behind the acts. The pigs here mostly do not have eyes. Faced with the dangers of ignorance, collective amnesia and blind obedience, symbolized by farm animals (roosters, donkeys, sheep etc.), Takashi Hara's (revolutionary) pigs remind us of the consequences of the marriage between Art and Politics.
