I recently searched the internet for the most f’d up, twisted sh*t I could find. Believe you me, I got an eye full. The following artists make Joel-Peter Witkin look like Thomas Kinkade.

I recently came across an article about Milo Moiré: the artist who lays eggs with her vagina. Yep. Her vagina.
In that vein, I decided to scour the internet for the most fucked up, twisted shit I could find. Believe you me, I got an eye full.
In July 1988, Gibson ate a canapé of donated tonsils. A year later, he publicly ate a slice of human testicle.
Said Gibson: “I became the first cannibal in British history to legally eat human meat in public.”
Mom must be so proud.
In August 2007, Vargas tied a street dog up in a Nicaraguan gallery, then allowed the animal to starve to death while gallery goers watched. *
He was often asked to free the dog, but he refused, and he instructed viewers not to feed it.
One word: evil.
In May 1980, Duncan purchased a female corpse in Tijuana for the purpose of sex, then taped himself doing the nasty with it. **
He later got a vasectomy “so that the last potent seed I had,” he recounted, “was spent in a cadaver.”
John Duncan: In a league of freaks and ghouls, you truly are a man apart.
* According to the gallery owner, the dog was actually fed and managed to escape. Here’s hoping.
** Audiotape. Not videotape. Hmmm.
