Pig Conversations

Read the PIG news...

“Who am I to decide and who am I NOT to decide? – Then we get collective discussion, when you get collective discussion, the problem I have is we go for some sort of a ‘middleground’. And in a way I would quite like the money to go for something a bit ‘out there'”

“I find donating to Pig incredibly liberating. The message is clear: you can donate to it, it is a community fund, And then when you decide (I guess it makes you wander who the ‘you’ is) you can spend it. It’s so straight forward… surprisingly so and it surprises me that anything can be that simple.”

Pigzine: “How do you feel about how easy it is to open?”

“I’ve wondered that. I’ve seen a little battle inside myself. So I’m going ‘okay so you can take the money.. but who would dare to? Would I be a person who would dare to?’ and then I started wondering about all the other people who wouldn’t dare to.

And then I starting wondering about permission and how I give myself very little permission…. and when I DO give myself permission to do something new: I feel liberated.

All of these things are going through me in the very clear image of this Pig.”

“I thought it was for collecting money for charity and an art installation at the same time. I don’t anymore.”

“The pig has really caught the attention of Hull. It has been the main talking point of [Freedom Festival] – I called a friend this morning to see if she enjoyed the festival and she replied with ‘yes what do you think of the Pig?'”

“It’s about provoking thought. It’s about seeing if people will contribute to the unknown”

Freedom Festival, Hull, UK – 02/09/2018

Pigzine: “Why did you donate to the pig?”

“Because ‘give when you can’ … and I want it to fill up to go to the community”

“Do you consider yourself a part of the community?”



“Because I’m a good member of society”

“I will always trust the people of Hull to come together”

Pigzine: “What do you think pig is about?”

“It’s about greed. Or when you save up for something you really want. You can only smash a piggy bank to get it so you have to try and fill it or know what you really want.”

Did you donate?

“Yeah. We let the children put some money in.”


“Because we want to get the children to get involved with the community. They can’t go on the merry-go-round but they can donate to the Pig. Donate to something bigger.”

Pigzine: “What’s just happened here?”

“Me and my nephew have just opened it up and taken some money out because he wants to give it to a charity.”

“What charity?”

“A cancer charity.”

“Would you consider yourself a member of the community?”



“Because I do things in the community and for the community. I also do things for free I go in my own time to do things for the community.”

“How do you define your community?”

“The city as an entirety is the community. There should be more of a community. We’ve just had a discussion about some guys taking some quids out of here earlier on and the whole point is that if anybody wanted…. If anybody disagreed about it, they just stood and watched it, nobody challenged them whatsoever, so there’s no community there. Do you know what I mean?”


“Or like say these guys… these guys who are seen to be the ‘faces of charity’… I bet these people here give money to charity and they don’t see who the money goes to. But as soon as they see someone taking the money who is deemed to be charitable they don’t like em, they don’t like them!”

“What do you think pig is about?”

“Theres loads of tiers to it, it challenges so many social concepts, so many social ideas. This city needs a concept like this. This city is forever degrading [members of the street community] the newspapers degrade them all the time, dehumanise them like the Nazi’s and the Jews. Call someone a name and it dehumanises them… apparently they aren’t entitled to the money but people give money to faces of charities. If only they was to know that it filters down to the same people who have taken money out of the pig – then what would they do? It’s strange. Its a strange concept. So I’m just teaching my little nephew here about a bit of anarchy. You don’t necessarily have to follow the rules. You don’t always have to do what people expect you to do to fit into society.”

Pigzine: “How do you feel in regards to there being some debate about whether the homeless community should be allowed to take some money out of this or not?”

Opener: “I don’t have any issue with that whatsoever. I was over there yesterday when it got moved and I was encouraging them to take money because I don’t have an issue with that.

People give to homeless charities so THOSE are the guys that should be receiving it – but amongst any other. And that is a social dilemma of ‘Who is most in need?’.

I have no issue with anyone taking it. Even if they look like they’re on drugs and they’re taking from this pot, because these people round here are all ill advised to judge anybody else that puts their hand in this pot. They all stand around here thinking they’ve got halos over their heads thinking their godlike in what they’re doing but that’s just not what it is.”
