Paul McCarthy Exhibit
I heard there was this big Paul McCarthy exhibit in town (not to be confused with Paul McCarthney*) so I checked it out at the Moderna Museet.
Talk about GROSS! His exhibit, the Head Shop is simply disturbing.
Imagine being whisked into a large room while 5 videos are played simultaneously. Some are porngraphic, the others are made up of people wearing cartoon elf masks while they chainsaw something unseen -- the common demoninator is that there is blood imagery and carnage EVERYWHERE.
His artistic concept was to use ketchup as blood, and boy did he use a lot!
After watching the movie, you were free to explore a replica of the set of the movies. The only thing, was the sets were set up to look like murder scenes -- making it very creepy considering that that you just saw the murder / porn videos. The entire set was coated in ketchup and chocolate sauce to give it the effect of a real blood.
Talk about bizzaro!

Above: Yes, very creepy!
*Note: If I ever run into Paul McCarthney -- as in the singer from the Beatles -- I'm so fighting him. I actually have beef with him, and it has to be settled. It would suck if I was owned by Sir Paul though.
