Nailing Sh!t To a Wall and Calling it Art

#1
there was the guy who had the cruxifix dipped in urine and called it art.. there was the guy who ' sculpted' the Virgin Mary out of elephant dung and called it art..
now there's this guy who is suddenly the 'to die for artist du jour '

Chinese, as it turns out [ though I don't think there is a subtext to that fact ]..his name is Zhang Huan..

his usual ' ouevre ' seems involve himself in ' performance art' and usually naked.

two examples:
1] He once stripped down, covered himself head to toe in insects, birdseeds and pieces of bread thrown at him by Americans.

2] his most famous ' piece ' [which was titled: 12 Meters Square ] consisted of him, naked, again, covered in honey and fish ' remains ' sitting for one hour in a grungy Beijing public toilet, while people went about using the facilities, as flies amassed on his flesh.

I know where'd I'd be if I did that..wouldn't take long for white coated chaps with jackets that buckle in the back to be coming to ' congratulate my works '...

anyone [ other than MDN ] got ideas for the next great artwork ?.. I'm sure a Saatchi could be convinced to buy it after all he plonked down some serious green for a pickled shark not too long ago...

I quite fancy cutting a chav in half and putting the f*cker in formaldehyde and getting idiots to pay a fortune to view it. Failing that, nailing a chav to the wall. It's not art as such, more of a hobby.

How about 'Tracy Emin Nailed to a Wall'.

I'd pay good money to see that piece of Art.
Only if she has a fcuking paper bag on her boat race.
Not a bad body but here grid has been beaten by all the ugly sticks going

Nah, that's Amy Winehouse.
Who could also use being nailed to a wall

Thick as a whale omelette too, and dull as fcuk. Did anyone see her on 'Have I Got New For You'?

Cracking tits.
And seen more traffic than the Dartford Tunnel (allegedly). Not that that's necessarily a bad thing but when I see the fragrant Ms Emin I think I'd have a go but I'd want it steam-cleaned first.

A combination of the above and using the artist who convinces thousands of people to strip naked in public places. Get thousands of chavs to strip naked in a public place (Sydney Harbour or Canary Wharf would be nice) and THEN cut them all in half and place them in formaldehyde. I'd pay to see that.

There was a bloke, can't remember his name, that "paints" by giveing himself a paint enema and then sh1ting all over the canvas. Talk about suffering for your art.

He sells quite well so I'm told.

Shoving 5 litres of Dulux up your hoop does not constitute art. Shoving the Dulux dog up Tracey Emins hoop, on a crumpled matress covered in used syringes, whilst battering Pete Docherty over the head with a lump of lead piping, and flaying the skin off Amy Shytehouse to make an attractive lampshade....now thats ART!

I think I may have some issues............

If you can take a dump in a tin can and persuade some mug punter to part with a few thousand quid for it then fair f-cks to you

Manzoni died, aged just 29, within two years of creating his tinned art. He was a hard drinker and his alcohol consumption led to him to suffer from a liver condition. In a letter to a friend, he explained that his motivation for tinning his faeces was to expose the gullible nature of the art-buying public.
