But is it art?

A Russian ‘performance artist’ (who might perhaps be better described as a masochistic exhibitionist) has chosen an unusual way to publicize his objections to the State.

A Russian performance artist nailed his genitals to the ground outside Moscow’s Red Square in protest over Russia’s “police state” as the country marked national police day.

There’s more at the link.  Those wanting to see it will find a video clip about it here (WARNING – it’s graphic).

Dare I say it took balls to do that?  Or is that too obvious?  And does he still have (the) balls to do something like it again?



  1. Ouch, no make that OUCH. It truly hurt to look at it. He certainly must truly believe in his principles but I think he might have found a better way to show them off.

  2. Peter,

    This "artist" may have given the US Electorate the solution to keeping our congressmen and senators on task.

    While it might cause slight harm to the capital furniture, I am sure there will be no shortage of volunteers to do the nailing
