Default Seven vials of semen forms art show



<< CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - So this is art -- for seven days Mexican performance artist Israel Mora ejaculated, in private, into seven glass vials.

After this and presumably after Mora, 33, had rested, the vials of semen were put in a white, refrigerated box, and strung up for exhibit between two trees at the Banff Centre, a cultural institution in the Rocky Mountain resort of Banff.

Titled "Level 7", the exhibit has been on display for the past six days. Thursday is the seventh, and last, day.

Banff Centre spokeswoman Connie MacDonald said the performance is part of Mora's seven-week residency. The cost, about C$4,000 (1,800 pounds), is being picked up by the centre and the Mexican government. The residency, called "SloMo", has time as its theme and a number of artists are involved.

Mora's cooler bears the label: "Warning: Contains 6 ml of semen extracted through masturbation, distributed among seven glass tubes."

MacDonald said the exhibit had gone mobile one day as Mora "did an walk downtown with his cooler as part of the performance. (The temperature) was about minus 25, and a group of artists from the centre went along with him, and he was fairly discreet and he wasn't trying to make a big show."

The vials represent the cycle of life in Mora's family.

"'Level 7' aims to examine the concepts of privacy and intimacy within contemporary society," the centre says.

why just not keep your equipment and do many repeat perfomrances -- you could easily make 6.5 million before you "retire"

Hey, for $4000 you can have as many of my swimmers as you want, unless my laptop kills them all first (see my thread)

i don't know what's with Art here in Canada. A few years ago a woman hung a bunch of dead rabbits in a tree and called it art. She even got tax dollars to do it. Text I guess we're just a cultured society, eh?

Modern Art does suck yes.

And this guy is just another example of how poor a culture is to accept this as art.

What is the Mexican government thinking? Even though crossing border to US is illegal, they act like they didn't see it because they want the people to bring in the money so Mexico would have more money... But they have the money to pay for this crap?
