Sex row over new 'art' show
A NEW exhibition of "drawings" created by masturbating over paper has been greeted with disgust - but the artist insists his work is "beautiful and delicate".
Performance artist Jordan McKenzie has created 55 images by ejaculating over canvas and sprinkling carbon over the results to immortalise them.
The results of his labour - entitled "Spent" - are going on display at the Centre for Recent Drawing in Highbury Station Road, Highbury, for a month.
Father Kit Cunningham, of St Etheldreda's Church, Ely Place, Clerkenwell, said: "All we can do is pray for the artist. The extraordinary thing is that someone actually thought it was art and put it on at his gallery. We are clearly dealing with a very mixed up person."
Art lover David Gleeson said: "Tracy Emin showed her knickers - but this is a different thing entirely. I am in favour of almost any form of expression but I do baulk at ejaculating over a piece of paper - oh please! Excuse the pun, but it sounds like he's taking the piss."
Mr McKenzie, 40 - who intends to carry on creating the drawings at a rate of three a week - describes his work as "an acknowledgement of human futility in the face of time as well as a violent record of male sexual drive - a poignant and elegiac witness to human fragility and impermanence."
Mr McKenzie, 40, said: "This is only the first batch of them. It is a diary of my ejaculations - they are heartfelt and delicate. I hope people will come and see them not judge them out of hand."
He admitted his mother had no idea about his latest work, but added: "I don't think it would bother her that much.
