Some of what can pass for art today is simply unbelievable.
The more bizarre, the greater the publicity and attention.
I do not want to add anything more to what this writer in the Guardian says. Had I written the piece, I would not have been as gentle with the artist.

Cheerful Monk made a valid and oh so true observation: “Why do people react?” When I saw the picture and its headline I did react in as much as, like CM, I skipped the article. Only reason I, eventually, did read it because of your link.
Art? What is art? Art defies all definition.
May I say the “art” a chicken employs when laying an egg far more wonderous than a woman doing her Easter thing. If I sat her down and asked about the arty farty bit she’d be truly hard pressed to explain it. One of these days someone will go to the toilet and exhibit its contents. As art.

My reaction to CM’s comment explains!
She has got a very good chance of winning the next ‘Turner Prize’ if she enters for it.

I would not be surprised at all.
I won’t say you are ever a waste of my time, Ramana. However, giving attention to this “art” felt like a waste of it.

I agree and thank you for the distinction.
Performance art isn’t as well known as it was in maybe the 1970s when some artists needed to make statements…some of the “art” actually was dangerous especially if the artist decided on a blindfold…
Then there is the static performance art that possibly starts with artist creating the object and then leaving it to the “viewer or even at times to the elements”
Take a look at graffiti knitters/or textilers who create something for an object and then hope no one destroys it…

That’s disgusting. And not art.

This just reinforces my opinion that Modern Art is an oxymoron.
