I once saw a show of rotting foodstuffs and I think maybe books(?).
It wasn’t her though.

Wow, I looked her up. I’d love to see her work sometime.

I truly believe that Divine sits at the right hand of god, judging for fabulousness.

Have I told you lately how fabulous you are?

We’ll only know that when we all die and go to heaven, where Divine will declare us fabulous or not so fab.

Only catches fire? Disappointing.

In retrospect, using arctic char was a rookie mistake.

Why bother adding potassium permanganate? Clearly odor from the installation was a known factor so why weren’t they installed in a sealed glass case? Certainly the presentation would’ve been much nicer than hanging plastic bags with fish on a wall.

Blazing Hot Rotten Fish Display, sounds like it was a successful jab at the art world.

Also good Ska-Rockabilliy fusion band name.

Seems to me oil and acrylic are nice media to work in. Smell a bit till they dry, but then they’re OK.

I read that dead shark installation smelled of formaldehyde after a while.
