"If think if you make art according to what people want you're a shoemaker," Melnyk told CBC News Saturday. "You're trying to figure out what people want and you make it for them. That's not art."
Obviously museums across the world are full of 'shoemaker' efforts by craftsman like Rembrandt, Renior, and da Vinci who did portraits and accepted commissions to do work. The museums and the artists clearly lacked any perception of real art. What a waste! Instead of cobbling together such useless inartistic efforts they could have been stuffing tubes full of condiments up their butts and done something immortal.

Old Man Winter: This kind of weird shiat doesn't set back gay rights.  Not at all.


Gays have all the rights in Canada and are legally protected.  So, nothing to concern troll about here.

Besides, this has nothing to do with being gay and everything to do with attention whore enemabaggery.

Artists say show meant to challenge audience

Challenging the audience for the sake of challenging the audience, is the shallowest form of art.

If there is nothing behind, that would make people think, then this is just sterile, and intellectual laziness.

Seems like a pervier version of The Dude's landlord.

I can't think of any dramatic personal insights obtained by watching a mayo enema.  Except maybe "I never want a mayo enema."  I never actually conceived of the idea, but now I know.  So, I guess, mission accomplished.  They increased my self awareness.  No mayo enemas for me.

dmarlar: So that's what they call challenging the audience seems more like an extreme voyeriusm fantasy for the guys involved


What is it with "artists" who think it's worthwhile to challenge their audience for the sake of challenging them? If you insist on my attention that forcefully, you'd better have something worthwhile to say. If not, you're just a six-year-old yelling bad words to get attention.

Things that are art:

-paintings
-sculptures
-poems
-plays
etc

Things that are not art:
-mayonnaise enemas

That's just nasty.  Seriously how farked up do you have to be to sit down and think... "You know what would be great in this show?  Stuffing a tube up my ass and firing mayo up there then shiatting it out in front of people!  Oh and I'll suck a dick too!  Yeah that's ART BABY!"

grinding_journalist: Ian Mozdzen and Doug Melnyk say the sex act in their show was simulated, but the enemas were real.

Well ok then.


I suppose it makes all the difference.

padraig: Artists say show meant to challenge audience

Challenging the audience for the sake of challenging the audience, is the shallowest form of art.

I agree. Shocking the public is way too easy. All an artist or entertainer has to do is do something sexual or violent and he gets an easy reaction. I could think of enough ideas of things to do right now that would shock the public for centuries to come, but what's the point? Anyone can do this easily and then fall back on "pushing the boundaries". Pushing the envelope just for the sake of pushing the envelop has become really cliche and boring. It might be shocking or amusing if you're a teenager but no one is getting any real value out of it. You don't reach some higher level of thought or become enlightened just because you've seen different items inserted into an asshole.

Exactly.

Getting people to examine long held preconceptions that may not be right is one thing. But would appear this only confirms what people already know, which is that they are not interested in mayonnaise enemas.
