I love how you're trying to provoke me now.

That's not what's happening at all.

However you are currently taking this thread off topic by assuming such things.

Well I'm not emitting an opinion on the piece of art itself but sometimes you have to look further than the elements at hand, sometimes you have to look at the idea, the concept. Definitely the women who made this made could have do it with another medium, but they chose.. their own blood... In any case, it's your job as a spectator to interpret the piece, and there is no right or wrong interpretation, as every person has a different life, different opinions, etc.

It's still fucking gross though, but come to think of it, maybe that's one of the elements of the concept... The fact that art doesn't have to be made with "noble" materials, but with human elements too.

Once at a museum I saw a book written with blood infected by AIDS. To me the words written didn't matter as much as the idea behind all the elements together (the writing, the blood, the disease).

In the end it's just a matter of does it speak to you or not.

Lets see if we can get this back on track. Personally, i think the idea is revolting, and a lot of modern art seems to be based not around skill, but rather 'what can be done that hasn't been done before'.

Thats like most things when you think about it. Lifes about originality if you want to sell out. People buy consoles, games, shoes, clothes, films because they're originial.


But yeah painting with your blood is rather wrong.

You know, I'd be okay if it was made with just normal blood.

But menstrual blood? That's just disgusting/wrong.

The concept is just another aspect of the art. Back in the classical era the paintings themselves rarely had any intellectual substance, even though the painting was "virtuoso". Scenes of couples or of hunters with their dogs were frequent, and even though the level of detail and realism was high, the originality was never really there. This is mostly due to the fact that there were many rules that ensured a certain uniformity in the art (and thus a lack of originality).

Skill, as you call it, is just one aspect of art, but there are so many other aspects that to dislike a work because of the lack of "skill" (every person's definition is different) is a bit foolish.

Heh... that's not true at all. In fact it's quite the opposite. What sells is what's always the same. Look at this year. All the best selling movies had predictable, generic plots, characters, music (Avatar, Twilight). The games that sell the most are those who have a definite form (New Super Mario Bros.). People want more of the same, very few care about real originality.

Well, disgust is another human emotion. And isn't the objective of art to wake up emotions in people? Who said that art had to be always pleasing?

It doesn't necessarily wake up emotions.


Kinda like the people who use aborted babies to make artworks. Doesn't change my opinion on abortions or stir up any feelings of me caring about their feelings. They're just crazy.
