Open Post: Hosted By The Crucifixion Of Pete Doherty

February 19, 2015 / Posted by:

In “Finally A Reason To Go Church Other Than For The Free Wine” news, an artiste named Nick Reynolds has created a stunning  and holy art piece of Pete “Dreamboat” Doherty called “Pete’s Sake.” If you ask me, “Crackie On A Cross,” would’ve been a better title, but I’m not the artist. The piece of Dreamboat in a diaper will be on display in St. Marylebone parish church from February 20th to March 17th as part of a charity exhibition called Stations of the Cross. So if you’re in London and have a Catholic abuelita, you know where to take her if you want her to scream, “blasfêmia,” while flicking holy water toward toward that sculpture.

Nick told The Guardian that his piece is life-sized and the real Dreamboat Doherty was cast for it. Nick made it because he feels like the media crucified Dreamboat and blah blah blah blah blah delusion blah blah pretentious artist words blah blah…

“When I created this work I saw Pete being crucified by the media and that provided the basis of my inspiration to make this piece.”

Art historians, update your files! “Pete’s Sake” is now the most important sculpture in history before David and that Venus chick. I only have one question, though. If you cut off a piece of that sculpture, chopped it up and snorted it, would you get a quick high? If not, then it’s not a real tribute to Dreamboat Doherty.
