Student Clayton Pettet Will Lose His Virginity In A Performance Art Show
CLAYTON Pettet, 19, is a second year student at London’s Central Saint Martins school of art. On January 25, 2014, Clayton says he will produce a piece of “performance art” involving him being vigorously shafted up his rectum for the first time.
It’s a big moment. The hope is that all Clayton’s friends and family (hope you can make it, nan) will turn up to support the budding artist in Art School Stole My Virginity.
“I’ve held on to my virginity for 19 years, and I’m not throwing it away lightly. Basically it’s like I am losing the stigma around virginity. Since culturally we do hold quite a lot of value to the idea of virginity I have decided to use mine and the loss of it to create a piece that I think will stimulate interesting debate and questions regarding the subject.”
After which, Clayton will be the non-virgin. People will flock to stare at the virgin who isn’t there. They will debate what’s missing, in the way they debate what happened to Shergar and why you never see baby pigeons.
“The key thing about performance art is that it should only be performed once, and this is the ultimate once-in-a-lifetime performance.”
Clayton is no fool. His bottom can be used first once, but the student’s body could break its duck in a few other ways, each filled hole an epic moment in Clayton’s life as an artist.
Says one art buff: “If this is modern art, you know where you can shove it.”
