Marni Kotak Says Her Live Gallery Birth Is Art

by | 10th, October 2011

IS the art world nuts? Artist Marni Kotak will give birth at Bushwick’s Microscope Gallery before an audience. Her work is part of a greater piece examining childbirth.

Other parts are said to include My Placenta And Me, Umbilical In Tope, Useless Husband and Screams Of Pain With Flashing Lights.

Says the artist of The Birth of Baby X:

“I hope that people will see that human life itself is the most profound work of art, and that therefore giving birth, the greatest expression of life, is the highest form of art.”

If it is art, young mums might be in line for a grant.
Someone call the Daily Mail pronto. I feel an artful foaming of the mouth coming on…
