Russia is home to a lot of controversial artists, one of which being an art group called “Voina”. This article is about the art group Voina planting a member in a grocery store that stole a raw chicken by sticking it up her vagina and walking out of the store. No one asked any questions or made her pay, although everyone saw her “storing” the chicken inside of her body, because she did it in the store. The group claims the reason behind the piece was a play on the word “whore” which in Ancient Russia “…meant “to lie” and “deception”. Nowadays in Russia there are millions of “whores” of both sexes, who have lost their moral and ethical principles; who deceive and kill each other.” What do you think? Does the act validate the point they were trying to make?
