Typical

You work with stone, chocolate, hot elements, van der Graaff generators and any amount of other stuff, but does Wikipedia mention any of that? No, you're typecast as "a Canadian artist best known for her works constructed from meat."

Then the art critics blather on about "issues of the carnivory implicit in societal attitudes to women". The truth is that she originally tried to make a skirt out of tofu, but it kept sliding off.

You'd think she would be better-known for her controversial 2002 piece, Undersized Zorb.

I'm pleased to see (Z)orbs and bunnies being discussed on the internet.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!

Typical that conceptual artists are only discussed in the media by the construction materials they choose. Is the art world ready for PHLEGM?

...the art world - yes ... the real world - what's the return on investment?

Undersized Zorb.

Controversial because it was DERIVATIVE.

I'm not saying that the Undersized Zorb is improved by dragging up the dancing eyebrows from an earlier post. I'm just saying it's possible.

Eat them and they return on you in three days.
