redefining recycling one pig at a time

-------

Contemporary art and fine dining were brought together last night in a smashing combo of sustainability when artist Peter Nadin and his wife, Art + Commerce co-founder Anne Kennedy, hosted a feast at their Greenwich Village town house in which the main course—a pig from the couple’s Hudson Valley farm—also featured in Nadin’s artwork. Nearly every body part of the animal not consumed by guests was incorporated into the artist’s practice: Hair became paintbrushes, fats and blood went into pigments and dyes. Art dealer Kirsha Kaechele, architect Michael Haverland (currently designing a retreat for Calvin Klein), Interview‘s Glenn O’Brien and Christopher Bollen, and artist Ross Bleckner were among the thrilled guests. Prior to chow time, the gang had attended a panel discussion at the New Museum, “Art and Defiance,” at which Nadin’s ecologically sound art-making was the topic. Talk about recycling! “We also smoke our own hams in the backyard,” said Kennedy. “It’s so great because I can smell them when I’m walking home from work.”
