Performance Artist Turns Himself Into a Bloody Stamp

03.23.11 Marina Galperina

Belorussian artist BioNihil who smoked a blood, nails and hair-filled bong last year returns with a performance at a French institute in Valencia, Spain. He slashed the words “every body is illegal” and went around hugging people at the art talk, effectively stamping them with a dripping, vague mirror image of his bodily inscription. That’s one way to get a message across.
