Is this part of the ambiguity?
The story took another turn today, however, when Ms. Shvarts was quoted, once again in the Yale Daily News, as saying that the abortions were real—something that Yale officials said she told them she would do if they issued a statement calling her work fiction. “Her denial is part of her performance,” Helaine Klasky, a university spokeswoman, wrote in an e-mail message to the Yale Daily News. “We are disappointed that she would deliberately lie to the press in the name of art.”
Avant Garde jumped the shark a long time ago, at this point we’re talking Joanie Loves Chachi. Is this all there is left to do? Something this sick in the head? Makes one wonder why humans do art in the first place if its only service to humanity is to gross them out and feel bitter.
This is why the midwest is so “bitterly frustrated” elitist east coast ostentatious crap like this.
It reminds me of Batman where Jack Nicholson says, “I now do what other people only dream. I make art until someone dies. See? I am the world’s first fully functioning homicidal artist.”
