This is Brooklyn-based performance artist Marni Kotak and I know the real story here should be about how she’s committing a NOT RIGHT by sitting on the mall Easter Bunny’s favorite chair, but that’s not what we’re here for. Marni is about to fill the air of a Bushwick art gallery with the musty scent of labor shits, pussy sweat, birth blood and the PBR that the art hipsters will be sipping on as they watch her push an entire baby out of her vagina as part of her newest performance art piece. Placenta kabobs and amniotic fluid-tinis will be served afterward, so come with an empty stomach. Or you can just nibble on any flying birthing bits that get stuck in your mohair cardigan.
The Microscope Gallery has already set up a birthing room with a birthing pool and Marni will stay there during business hours until the time comes for her to push out her child. The father of Marni’s child, her midwife and who ever wants to see her coochie get ripped apart live will watch the birth. The newest gift to the art world will be born in a few weeks and Marni had this to say about the piece that should really be titled: WHAT BILLIONS OF WOMEN HAVE DONE BEFORE THIS CRAZY HO.
“I hope that people will see that human life itself is the most profound work of art, and that therefore giving birth, the greatest expression of life, is the highest form of art.
I have decided to do this because I want to show people that, as in my previous performances, real life is the best performance art. I wouldn’t say that I am scared to do this, because I have a good support team: my midwife, doula and wonderful husband,” she said. “Of course, I am a bit nervous about the whole process of giving birth and having a child, and like every mother, I am hoping that everything goes smoothly.
“But I am no more worried than I would be if I were having the baby at home or in a hospital.”
After the baby of Baby X, Marni will start another performance art piece called “Raising of Baby X.”
If this crazy wants people to see her snatch turn inside/out while giving birth and people are willing to pay, then I say push on push on. It’s a tax-write off and if she drops a caca during labor, I’m sure it will get its own exhibit at the Whitney.
And note to Beyonce if she wants to shut down the conspiracy theorists: You’re due in February. The Grammys are on February 12th. You know what to do.
