Again with the NSFW?



Apparently I still retain the capacity to be surprised by the weird and wonderful world we inhabit.  After the sex-athon of last week, I was made aware by another alert reader who shall remain nameless about an artist whose creations can be called nothing more than X-ray Porn.

The artist transformed a medical clinic in Belgium into a studio, coated his subjects with a slurry of barium and Nivea body cream, and let them do their thing for the cameras.

I'm not going to host the images, but you can see them here or here or Google the artist's name, Wim Delvoye.  Very very NSFW.

And I swear this is not going to be a habit.  But sometimes you just gotta link the wonderful crazy stuff.

The male subject is the artist himself, I have heard from a very close source.

He likes to make work that is scandalous, like machines that eat and make poop, or tatooed pigs.

Way penis focused. I wonder if he realizes that tongues work on women, too?

male artists always say female nudity is just for the purpose of art. But apparently that only works one way, yet again.

For me, that ruins any other artistic merit I might see.

It gives a whole new meaning to the word "boner"

And yet, once one gets past the "wow! xray pron!" it's neat to re-examine the shots; I mean, look at the number of fillings and dental posts... neat stuff.
