Title: So Called Art, Ver. 2.0
Post by: FortNinety on July 29, 2009, 08:51:31 PM
Was gonna post the following in the random blogs thread (is it just me, or have we officially hit the reasonable maximum for "random" threads?), but since that's more for yuks and yelling, figured a semi-complement to Dave's thread might be in order.

First off, just came across this guy's site... http://www.kevindart.com/ ... and it's great! I especially like his Tales From Japan series...

Was gonna start another "lol, art and design" thread till I stumbled across this somewhat forgotten topic. And this one is definitely qualifies for a lol...

Quote
So... Richard Whitehouse, an artist from Ohio is constructing a piece called The Rape Tunnel. It's an installation in a gallery, a long narrowing tunnel that can be walked through, and he's promising that anybody who enters it during the exhibition, he'll attempt to rape.

In 2007 at the Seward Projects Space in Columbus, I had my first breakthrough with an installation that was to be the prototype for this current one. It was called THE PUNCH-YOU-IN-THE-FACE TUNNEL. It was the same set-up as THE RAPE TUNNEL except at the end of the tunnel I’d punch the subject in the face instead of raping him or her. The impetus was completely reactionary to the current state of art, and motivated by pure frustration.

As it turns out, I ended up breaking the nose of the third person to crawl through the tunnel, an aspiring model. She went to the hospital and eventually sued me. Her modeling career was put on hold. The civil case was long and drawn out and the matter still hasn’t been resolved. To this day she still has unpaid medical bills. The point of this long aside is that all this took place two years ago, and I’m still having an impact on this young lady’s life, something not many other artists could claim about their work

Rape seemed like the next logical step.

Emphasis mine. As if it were necessary. So does he get Douchebag of the Year award for 2007 for punching her in the face or DotY 2009 for having two years to reflect on what he did and arriving at that conclusion? I say he gets both.

(although I'm a little curious if the punch you in the face tunnel forewarned participants about the meaning of the title)
