43-year-old performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'Parels voor de Zwijnen' in Vermeersch Pig Farm, Zedelgemsesteenweg 64, Eernegem, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium.

A handful spectators was led along a muddy path in the dark towards a pig stye where they can enter one by one. The pig stye is divided in partitions that hold seven pigs each, totalling about 100 pigs. At the end of the small corridor that leads through the middle of the stye a film is projected onto my naked body. From several incisions in my body blood is seeping. I hung there for about half an hour. The pigs got excited by the smell of people and blood.
