The artist who lays eggs with her vagina – or why performance art is so silly

Performance artist Milo Moiré creates abstract paintings by pushing eggs filled with paint and ink out of her vaginal canal. She does this while standing naked in front of an audience. The nudity, apparently, is artistically essential. As for the act of pushing paint-filled eggs out of her body, it is – as no doubt you perceive – a powerful feminist statement about women, fertility and creativity.

"It is more to raise an issue about what sculpture is for me, and I hope that might communicate itself to an audience. It’s a strange medium in that it takes up space, it takes up our space. It brings things into the world, and there is already too much stuff in the world. So it’s kind of absurd, and its absurdity is what I find fascinating. So perhaps it will mean that people will have to walk around it. I hope that will arouse curiosity about sculpture, about what it is and why it is what it is."

"The term sculpture is derived from the Latin sculptura, from sculpere, to carve or cut out of stone. A strict application of this rather restricted interpretation would exclude all forms save that of carving in stone. The term is today employed in a wider and more inclusive sense and embraces an abundance of materials and methods.
Sculpture is, essentially, a three-dimensional art concerned with the organisation of masses or volumes. the sculptor composes his work in terms of volumes or masses, planes, contours, light and dark areas and textures"

Life is Beautiful is a 2009 installation by Iranian artist Farhad Moshiri using hundreds of kitchen knives to create some exquisite typography.

I found this incredibly neat!
