Please protest Silvina Marotti’s prolific use of fur

August 29, 2011

Artist: Andrew Hearne, University of Brighton


Silvina Marotti is a horror exhibition of fox fur rugs, cushions, and all other sorts of sordid items being sold at a famous craft fair in Sao Paulo/Brazil. Please complain to the organizers:

Silvina Marotti


To Whom It Concerns,

I am shocked to discover that Silvina Marotti is still commercially engaged with the fur industry. Due to the inherently-brutal business of fur farming, any products derived for or from the suffering and killing of animals should be rejected, and I am respectfully requesting that both Craft Design and Ms. Marotti finally discontinue profiting off the exploitation of animals.

Please watch the undercover footage of the industry you promote: animals are forced to endure deplorable conditions including living in cramped, feces-crusted cages; suffering from sickness and disease; lacking an enriching environment; and being subjected to substandard diets and severe psychological trauma. They are then butchered via anal electrocution, gassing, skinning alive, and forced trauma. Why in the world would you WANT to cause such suffering?


Humans are capable, indeed obligated, to acknowledge animals as sentient beings who, like humans, experience love, anguish, pain, and suffering. Human apathy as established by the usage of fabrications and euphemisms reflects a lack of respect, not only for animals, but also for humans, and I implore upon you to examine your role in the suffering of animals and your unscrupulous conduct as host to such a cruel business. Regrettably, as long as you unnecessarily and selfishly capitalize on the mutilation, torture, and death of animals, I will not financially support you or your associated products. Furthermore, I will share this information with family, friends, colleagues, and members of online communities.

Please make both the ethical and responsible decision to discontinue your commercial support of fur immediately: join an increasing body of compassionate designers who are listening to a concerned and attentive consumer population who refuse to be complicit in the inherently malicious industry of fur farming. I hope this letter finds you willing to scrutinize your own involvement and desire to protect, rather than harm, animals.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important message.

did it to your little mind
ever occur
that there is nothing chic
about using fur
that the screams of the tortured
the terrified, the dying
make a tear filled puddle of blood
on the fur you are buying

    I was going through a box of movies, when I came across an old gay “Classic.”, which I am sure a lot of you have probably seen. That movie is “The Boys In The Band.” Well, for me, it was my first time seeing it, and I really didn’t care for it.
