They Poach the Rhino, Chop Off His Horn and Make This Drink

This combination of performance and sculpture art by Singaporean artist Tang Da Wu brings light to the adverse effects of manufacturing and mass consumption on nature, focusing specifically on the use of rhino horns in a popular Southeast Asian drink. Wu originally performed the work at the National Museum Art Gallery in 1989, and today the remnants of the work are on display as a representation of how art helped drive change in Asia during the late 20th century.
