Santiago Sierra: The Penetrated

quote [Spanish artist Santiago Sierra has a long history of creating controversial works that explore issues of capitalism and exploitation in various historical and social contexts. His art often combines installation and performance, and is usually documented by photography and video. In this show, “Los Penetrados” [The Penetrated], a group of nine large-scale black-and-white photos (all works 2008), including one diptych, depict a cavernous space occupied by multiple couples (a mix of black and white, homosexual and heterosexual) in various stages of anal penetration]. Have a look also to 34 cm. (video at the bottom... nsfw).
