    Marco Perego, The Only Good Rock Star Is A Dead Rock Star 2008

Marrying the hyperrealist tradition of Duane Hanson and Andy Warhol’s prophetic approach to pop culture, Marco Perego unveils his most ambitious set piece to date, a sculpture of William Burroughs murdering Amy Winehouse entitled, “The Only Good Rock Star is a Dead Rock Star.” … Perego’s installation speaks concurrently to the steep price of fame and an infamous literary game gone deadly, creating a provocative situation that while historically impossible is visually plausible through-and-through. The Minnie Mouse mask next to her lifeless body is not just a nod to Disney, but a reference to the infamous Amy Wine-mouse video of her partying with Pete Doherty. via artdaily

This is the first thing that I have seen that has genuinely shocked me in a while.  I am hoping that doesn’t mean I am completely desensitized to things but I am loving that this is illiciting such a strong reaction from me.
