I’m With PETA On This One

I guess I just don’t understand modern art, at least not modern performance art. It is not often I can say this, but I have to agree with PETA that this is “sick.”

Animal rights activists have described as “sick” a live art performance involving a naked woman cradling a dead pig for four hours.

Kira O’Reilly’s show, called “Inthewrongplaceness” will be performed at the Newlyn Art Gallery in Penzance, southwest England, later on Friday.

James Green, the gallery’s director, defended the show, saying that the audience would be controlled, with one person at a time watching the performance for up to 10 minutes each.

“In terms of the gallery’s view, we feel very strongly that we should provide audiences in the region with opportunities to see the kind of works that they have to go to London to experience,” he told Reuters.There is a picture accompanying this article, if you can stomach it. Links via Drudge.
