Would you call this video art? performance art? funny bloopers? political activism? – not sure how to categorize it but, it certainly deals with the penis.

“O! Public Art SculpturesIn 2007,”

“A health insurance company based in Omaha, Nebraska, commissioned 22 local artists to decorate large “O” letter forms. I responded to this ridiculous branding of my city by building a giant penis sculpture to violate the public art project. I documented my guerrilla performance art on YouTube, and my video received twice as many views than the official video released by the Omaha Chamber of Commerce. Even though my stunt was controversial, many of the participating artists appreciated the joke, and I continue receive positive feedback from the creative community. “

Performance art by Peter Pavlensky – he nails his testicles to the ground in front of the Red Square in Moscow

November 10th, Activist artist Peter Pavlensky nailed his balls to the ground.

Check out the video below:

The Saint Petersburg-based artist said in a statement posted on the Grani.ru website that he was trying to draw attention to Russian society’s inaction in the face of the development of a “police state”.

Russia marked its annual Police Day holiday on Sunday.
Pavlensky known for other high-profile protests. May 3 this year, he went to the building of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg naked and wrapped with barbed wire. Campaign “Carcass” symbolized “man’s existence in a repressive legal system, where any movement causes severe reaction of the law, bites into the body of an individual.”

In July last year Pavlensky held a rally in support of prisoners participating Pussy Riot. He sewed his mouth and stood at the Kazan Cathedral with a placard “Speech Pussy Riot has been famous action replay of Jesus Christ (mf.21 :12-13).”

Phallic shaped oil dispenser for when you want to “splash on” the oil

These  wonderful hand blown glass carafes definitely deserve a spot on this site.  They make you think in a completely different way about oil when you use them.   The question  of “how much oil” to use when cooking or making your salad will never quite be the same when you are using these dispensers!

Two activist art groups make huge penis-art for political statements.

The Russian underground art group that calls itself Voina created in my opinion one of the best political pieces of art of our times – simple and “to the point” (pun intended)

Check out this video of them in action:

for more information about this group, check out them out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voina

Apparently though, they aren’t the only activist group that seems to think the penis has something in common with the government.  Check out “Shift // Delete”‘s statement on British Parlement
