Saeborg, the imperfect cyborg, is half human, half toy. Saeborg’s performances are resembling nightmarish configurations of gigantic playmobils in bizarre fairytale settings. Inflatable latex is used to shape the huge figures of a truck-sized pig and its humanoid piglets. No matter how cartoonish and friendly they seem, the birth of the inflatable piglets is playfully twisted. Sleazy, shiny, squeaking, anthropomorphic, these pigs are crossbreeds between BDSM and animal-costumed PETA protesters. Is it a queer performance of operatic proportions or an allegory created to initiate kids in veganism? Are those cute piglets to be hugged and petted or are they bloated sexual fantasies to be acted out in role-playing? In Saeborg’s Pigpen, the humans step aside while the pork-chops trot in the spotlight.
