“Starving gallerist” Guy Bérubé is hot about saving his Ottawa gallery by renting it out as a porn set. He’s got “moral questions,” but he already rents the place out for shindigs, he’ll charge double for porn and it’s dubbed Le Petite Mort Gallery (“the little death,” what those fatalistic French call orgasms), so surely most of those “questions” can be solved with taped tarp and soap.

Remember the S&M dungeon installed in a Vienna museum? Yeah… Now, I’m not saying this is for everyone — just people who enjoy art, porn and fund-raising. But perhaps contextual bridging of the gap between performance art and [select] porn could be lucrative and culturally productive. And fun.
