Now it’s real again?
From the Huffington Post: “Aliza Shvarts’ Insists Miscarriage Art Project Is Real
I gather that the art student in question is now asserting that the project is real and not a hoax or a performance art piece. This avowal -disavowal-avowal certainly is serving to keep the story alive. At one point she asserted that the project was meant to call attention to something or other about women’s bodies (I am getting lost in the confusion of the whole show) yet it is kinda sorta starting to seem like what is being called to attention, whether purposely or inadvertantly, has more to do with the notion and acceptance, or not, of shock art, media manipulation and instant celebrity-flavored infamy. So, at the end of the day, what is this all really about?
I found this quote by the artist on dlisted.com:, “No one can say with 100-percent certainty that anything in the piece did or did not happen, because the nature of the piece is that it did not consist of certainties.”
