Notorious Performance Art Pieces (2)
In 1972, for his piece entitled ‘Seedbed’, Vito Acconci concealed himself underneath a ramp in New York’s Sonnabend Gallery where he masturbated for eight hours a day murmuring obscenities about the exhibition’s visitors, such as “You’re pushing your cunt down on my mouth”. His groans and comments sounded throughout the whole gallery over a loudspeaker.
