Kids & Guns – Art By Marina Abramovic

Marina Abramovic is an artist.  According to the infallible wikipedia she describes herself as the “grandmother of performance art”.

It appears that she also fancies herself a photographer:


How EDGY!  How RAW!  How REAL!
… *gasp*

I can’t find any deep “purpose” statement about this exhibit from the artist. I’m sure it would be priceless.

Well that was a sufficient waste of time, bandwidth, CPU cycles, etc…

So basic pictures like that make people famous enough to get an exhibit in the MoMA?  Good to know… good to know…

You can check out some more equally yawn-worth pics from the artist if you need more reasons to be mad that she’s famous for crap like this and you’re not.

Why is it when an artist gets a bunch of under-aged girls to come over to her house and pose in bed for pictures it’s called “art.” But when I do it people call the police?!

Because she’s an artist, and you’re a pedophile!

Good Lord that was weird, even by the standards of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”

However, I think there’s a bit of a misunderstanding. This is what I consider to be a “troll” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMEe7JqBgvg

Love how the AK on the far left of the top picture is missing an ironsight, and the one second from the right is upside down.

I don’t have any problems appreciating art; but this is just pretentious bullshit.
