Andrew Krasnow: What a Fucking Cunt™!

andrewkrasnow-is-a-cunt

Okay, so Andrew Krasnow is an ‘artist’ whose medium is human skin.

His ‘work’ is made from the skin of White men who have donated their bodies to science. Apparently, the left over skin can be purchased at auction. Eoow.

Anyway, Krasnow’s ‘work’ is controversial. But it will be on exhibit in July at the GV Art gallery in London. I’m sure there will be quite a turn-out. The gallery owner notes that Andrew “uses skin to make the point that suffering is universal. It is tanned using the same process that you’d use for an animal skin.

Krasnow says his work represents his opposition to war and bla bla bla. He also makes lampshades out of skin, to make the statement that bla bla bla. Yep, lampshades.

Can we all agree that Andrew Krasnow is a fucking cunt?

On the subject of human skin, but this time involving Actual Art, tonight I saw the French horror film Eyes Without a Face for the first time. If there’s anyone left who hasn’t seen it yet, let me say that it lives up to its reputation. Shocking, haunting and poetic, it also nearly made me throw up. Don’t watch it right after dinner.

    To J.M.
    So you are a defender of this behavior upon your pal. Bravo.
    It is freely described by Andrew in his explanation that these are masochistic practices of those running concentration camps. So haven’t you ever heard of resisting to lower yourself to those who do wrong least you make yourself as bad as them? Apparantly, your “Friend” Andrew hasn’t. I find him no better. How precious is an opinion that it’s point need be made by an act equally barbaric? What it is, is lazy and callous. These people who donate their bodies hardly had this in mind as what they intended for their sacrifice. Try a little harder in the name of persuasion, that’s why what’s right is intended to be better, and not brutally forced upon the social conscious. Was that opinion not devoid of your issues upon this forums audience? Really! What would you expect from people who are expressing their disgust? Contempt breeds Contempt, Douchebag!

    You found him “self-deluting” and “sudo-intellectual”. Wow. Attacking an argument by attacking its presenter may be a cheap shot, but 240…you are in dire need of some writing instruction.

    So this article is written by someone who hates the artist, or what he stands for, or what he’s done; or something.

    But instead of being able to articulate the point the writer uses the word “cunt” as gratuitously as a pub filled with angry, drunken footie fans, and with just as much effect on the artist (who is, much like the footie fans in my analogy, distant and unable or uninterested in your opinion).

    The outcome is free press for the art, the artist, and his medium.

    -Golf clap-

    Happy to keep this at the top of the search engines for you, AND for Krasnow.

    Andrew and I were friends for a while and I am pleased to say I knew man. While his art startled me, I admire his courage and his talent. I don’t expect someone who uses a misogynistic term to understand.
