grow where you are

Animal lives are often positioned as inherently more killable than humans’ just by virtue of their species membership. This positioning renders the grief felt for animal death socially unintelligible. Grow Where You Are resists this erasure by acknowledging the everyday violence enacted by the US industrialized animal agricultural system. This performance made for camera creates space to unthink and undo the conceptualization of other-than-human life as commodity and extends grievability across species lines.
