performance artist and Governor General's award receipient Istvan Kantor


Misplaced priorities

Princeton, Ontario - Tuesday, March 9, 2004 - by: Rebecca Gingrich




Tonight on 'The Last Word', Nigel Hannaford discussed the 'artist' who sprays his blood on all and sundry.  Apparently this is the 'artist's way of rebelling against the establishment and mechanization! 




The kick in the head that he mentioned was that, on the 'artist's' trip to New York (where he sprayed a Picasso with his blood (above left)), the taxpayer of Canada funded his trip to the tune of $40,000. 




They take money away from the military, deciding that $50/day for meals is too much and clawing back $3,000 from men who went on course in good faith. The inmates are in charge of the asylum.
