The act of slaughtering animals for sustenance is a topic that many people feel quite strongly about and ‘Actus Reus’ by Tamara Kostianovsky looks to reimagine the very cuts of meat that we consume as vibrant pieces of art made from fabric. In essence, ‘Actus Reus’ by Tamara Kostianovsky helps to make the act of slaughtering animals a bit more bearable by interpreting those very cuts as pieces of art.

Created using leftover fabric from Kostianovsky's clothing collection, ‘Actus Reus’ is ornately created, hyperrealistic and comments on our social status in the factory farmed world. Essentially, ‘Actus Reus’ by Tamara Kostianovsky makes the act of killing animals for their flesh somewhat more lighthearted to make admirers step back and question protocol in the grand scheme.
