What you’re looking at here is an ongoing project entitled “Self” by artist Marc Quinn. A more detailed explanation is that you’re looking at a sculpture of Quinn’s own head made out of 4.5 liters of his own frozen blood. The blood is taken from this own body over a period of five months. The work is then repeated every five years to establish a unique record of the artist aging.
If this doesn’t creep you out or make you vomit a little in your mouth then I don’t know what will.
Absolutely disgusting. What won’t artists come up with next? It’s almost as bad as the “art piece” I saw entitled “Virgin,” which featured a real naked (and presumably virgin) girl spread eagled on a pedestal.
