New York Gallery Displays Stench Filled T-Shirts from #Occupy Protests … And Call it Art (Occupy Dis-scent)
Art is supposed to be in the eye of the beholder, not their nostrils … What’s that smell? Oh, it’s the Occupy protesters.
What a joke, a New York gallery is displaying 99 stench riddled, unwashed t-shirts from the Occupy protest movement from Zuccotti Park and calling it art. Good grief. Who knew that this so-called art would be scratch & sniff? Talk about a movement in search of a message. Stink is its essence. NICE! Call it Occupy “Dis-scent”.
It’s political dis-scent: An olfactory artist has transported the stench of Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park to a Staten Island art gallery.
“The Smell of a Critical Moment,” which opened yesterday at Doorways on Van Duzer Street, features 99 T-shirts that protesters wore for a week straight, without washing them.
Artist Gayil Nalls distributed new white tees to OWSers and on Jan. 12 collected the body-odor-drenched shirts to capture the revolution’s essence.
The essence of the Occupy protests was its smells? Funny, most people consider the fact that these dirt bags needed a shower and a bar a soap to be a joke, not its essence. The lack of sanitary conditions is what lead to many of these encampments to be closed … these fools want to celebrate it as art. UNREAL.
