!! OMG, artist Paul McCarthy erects giant Christmas Tree butt plug in Paris !!

Place Vendôme in Paris is now the home to one giant green “Christmas Tree” buttplug c/o artist Paul McCarthy!

The sculpture is the centerpiece of the International Contemporary Art Fair (FIAC), which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. Tree also coincides with the opening of “Chocolate Factory,” the artist’s first solo survey in France, which in turn coincides with the grand reopening of the Monnaie de Paris.
The organizing theme for this special celebration of contemporary art in Paris appears to be what the French call le plug: Not only does Tree bear an uncanny resemblance to the flanged sex toy, “Chocolate Factory” will see workers produce thousands of chocolate figurines of Santa Claus holding this “emblem.”

Paris has got it good. I mean, Hong Kong worked with Paul and all they got was this giant pile of shit, so Place Vendôme is a real step up!e5828ab81.jpg

!! OMG, spot them if you can! Artist AVAF and Lady Bunny take The Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires with psychedelic roller rink !!

Artist assume vivid astro focus has created a psychedelic roller rink at the Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires Argentina. The roller rink will feature the sounds of DJ Lady Bunny who says “I’ve never been to such a glamorous soundcheck!”.
AVAF created the same installation (but different) over ten years ago in the infamous Central Park skating rink, and has brought it back to bring some more joy and togetherness to the world.
Inspired by a time not long ago when asked about the piece, Lady Bunny has some wise reflections to share regarding the 80’s, the gay community and the present (via the beuonosairesherald):

Even though at a ten year celebration with an originally ten-year old work, nostalgia is not centre stage here. It is about bold fun; festive fun referring to the crazy early 80s in New York with inclusivity of unique individuals, that sometimes do not feel at place anywhere else, at its heart. Lady Bunny represents this more than anyone else. “But don’t be fooled,” says Lady Bunny “it was not just fun. The 80s was a difficult time too. The gay community was also scared. We were dying. I saw my friends dying. Dying like flies…
But I am not all into gay rights, and especially not its movement — I am for human rights for everyone, male, woman, and any one in between. Being part of an older generation of the gay community, I do feel I can teach the next generation something: don’t be fooled by new AIDS drugs — just use a condom.

AMEN!
