Yellow Cow Performance, 2010
Duration: 2 mins 28 secs
Yellow Cow is a series of interventions, performances and installations inspired by a passage in the Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow), which is the longest chapter in the Qur’an. It is not a work of art that seeks resolution, it is an ongoing project that literally and figuratively places this ancient story into contemporary consumer society. The project has been realised as a film, a shop installation, a brand and a series of products, all asking the same question posed by the story in the Qur’an: what is so special about this yellow cow?
