Eggs Benedict

An artist is about to put her art work on display in Wisconsin. Called “Eggs Benedict”, the work made entirely out of 17,000 coloured condoms, bears an uncanny resemblance to retired Pope, Benedict. The work is a protest about comments he made a few years back claiming the use of contraception in Africa could increase the spread of AIDS. A bit late honey on your protest!

Vaginal Knitting

OMG, please don’t watch this video if you are easily grossed out. A woman artist  in Australia has taken her craft to a whole new level. She is inserting balls of wool into her vagina and then using the thread to knit scarves and stuff… I couldn’t make this up.

John Hinckley Unhappy With Public’s Perception

Remember John Hinckley the guy who tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan? Yeah well, apparently he isn’t happy that people only think of him as the guy who tried to kill the president.Hmm, well I always thought of you as the nutter who was trying to impress Jodie Foster, if that helps? Anywho, Hinckley, who resides in a mental hospital, has been dabbling in music and painting and is frustrated by the public’s perception  “I’m an artist. I’m a musician. Nobody knows that. They just see me as the guy who tried to kill Reagan,” Hmm, yep, pretty much!

Your Work is Shit?

OK, this isn’t something new but an artist in Australia is having an exhibition featuring her own feces. Yes, Georgie Mattingley (21) works with her own brightly colored shit. The exhibition entitled Life is Delicious will be held at Kingston Arts Centre, Moorabbin. Mattingley became fascinated with the color of excrement when she was 13 “I’ve done everything I can to turn something so vulgar and repulsive into something so beautiful and spiritual”. Hmm,  I bet she goes through hell cans of air freshener. Click here to see a sample of her work Life Is Delicious.

Psst You know somehow I can’t imagine hanging her work on my wall!
