all the press madness

Puppy Love Calendar (and its most (in)famous picture) went global.

it has already been mentioned in most major Irish, Polish and international media. we didn't expect it to cause such confusion and we were thrilled and surprised by the reach that have been covered by us - both geographically and by the dialogue it has arisen.

some felt heavilly offended by its content, while others were delighted with the idea. the positions were divided and rather feuded - artistic expression could be seen and appreciated by many, but some decided only to see the superficial literality of an image.

"i think the picture is unfairly taken as obviousness, as a recorded act - or even as a footage, which is wrong and just unfair. it does not record anything, it simply creates a scene (in order) to shape a metaphore and symbolism. it plays with our perception, but it's absolutely harmless..." we have explained to a TV journalist when asked to take our position.

one is evident - it caused an international discussion, made people think and talk about art and its boundaries, but also pointed out a very sensitive cause - the situation of animals in Irish shelters.

with all respect to everyone involved in production and ther efforts to create a beautiful, unique and exeptional product the fisrt, one and ONLY purpose of Puppy Love Calendar was to raise an awareness and help animals! and this was achieved..  we are proud of  us all!
