Whatever gets you off, I guess.....
Yes, it appears this "dance" is performed with clown nose and ripped panties around the ankles. But why not get the explanation of her "art" direct from the horse's mouth?
Perhaps you recall a recent report (I seem to recall Chuck covered the incident) about a performance artist in Paris who attached a rooster to his genitals for a public parade. That was Stephen Cohen, and here's more about him.
Caution: some mild, non-sexualized nudity.
Chinese artist He Yunchang believes in suffering for his art. His performance pieces have included:
- Having one of his ribs removed so that he could wear it as a necklace.
- Having a doctor cut a one meter gash down the side of his body, without anesthesia.
- Encasing himself in a cube of quick-setting concrete for 24 hours.
- Trying to "cut a river in half" by suspending himself above it from a crane while holding a knife in the water, as blood dripped from cuts in his arms.
- Painting the fingernails and toenails of 10 mannequins with his own blood.
- Staring at 10,000 watt bulbs to damage his eyesight
- Burning his clothes while wearing them.
Art critic Judith Neilson explains:
“He Yunchang is an alchemist of pain... He Yunchang evidently believes that pain and extreme discomfort, deliberately planned and willingly undergone, have a transcendent quality — and that it is this quality that raises mere action to the level of art. [His performances] serve as silent rebukes to contemporary Chinese society, where people undergo all kinds of suffering for money precisely because they see money as the ultimate protection against suffering."

If you can watch all ten minutes of this without feeling the urge to quit or fast-forward, you are made of tougher stuff than I.
of the "artist."
Fifty years ago, on Apr 25, 1964, someone sawed off the head of the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen. Today, performance artist Uwe Max Jensen will commemorate that event by miming the act of sawing off the head of the Little Mermaid and then putting his own head in a bucket. Naturally, he'll do this dressed only in his birthday suit.
Some of Uwe Max Jensen's previous work includes his groundbreaking, self-explanatory piece titled, "For one complete week, I will only use the Aarhus Museum of Art when having a shit."
And there's also his 2005 piece titled "Raising the water level in a sculpture by Olafur Eliasson." This involved urinating in Eliasson's 'Waterfalls' sculpture.
