This 'artist; is obviously yet another candidate for live organ donation; use her body parts to enable decent people to live and throw out her empty body for the dogs. Perhaps some artist could capture the sequence of operations on 'cam............just a thought
Interstgly enough i had an e-mail come to me yesterday (with pretty much the same title as this thread) asking me to sign on of those e-petition thingys.
However the subject of outrage in the e-mail was another "artist," who had taken a stray dog from the street and tied it up in an art gallery and left it to starve whilst patrons of the gallery watched its demise. below is a copy of some of the e-mail and hopefully a picture.

Gandalf don't stress about it...that was a WAH! the dog was indeed a stray and it was fed and watered after the gallery closed, then released, when the exhibition closed, unharmed back on the streets to do its own thing again having had a couple of weeks of good food and warmth.
It was done to provoke a reaction, the reaction being that we can willingly watch animals starve to death on the streets just not when it is put before us, santised and presented, it was designed to take us out of our 'comfort zone' and thats just what it did!
This 'artist' is doing the same thing, she is sanitising a deeply personal act by shoving it in your face, I don't agree with abortion but she is not 'aborting' anything, she is mearly stopping the pregnancy occuring....bit like being on the pill! and I'm sure we will all start complaining about that!........no! didn't think so!
But once again proves that "Art" is inherently built on snobbery, and if you don't "get it" then you're deemed to be an uncultured slob.....
..as opposed to just someone who thinks it's all a bunch of f-ucking arse executed by people scared to work for a living and adored by people with nothing more f ucking important to do (i.e. the "art" heirachy).
i've seen so called "art" by supposed masters that wouldn't look out of place on a primary school wall but is deemed genius because of who painted it... utter cock and is just another example of the human obsession with exclusivity and wanting to feel different from the herd.
I recently visited the national gallery and for me the most impressive thing in there was the superbly laid and polished wooden flooring.... but i'm a practical soul and find things that aren't actually "for" anything and serve no practical purpose irrelevent.
The Chinese conceptual artist who made an "artwork" where he apparently cooked and ate a baby. Turned out to be a hoax. I hope the "artwork" referred to at the start of this thread is also. Otherwise we need to ask what it is about modern art that can turn its practitioners into moral degenerates.
