Pic of the Day: Sign the Petition
On the outskirts of Lyon, artist Thierry Ehrmann has, in the words of inimitable artblog Artkrush « $3.2 million turning his house into a shock exhibit by 45 artists, replete with a « blood »-filled swimming pool, the remains of a crashed aircraft, scorched walls, and portraits of Osama bin Laden and Tony Blair. » He christened his house the fittingly sinister Abode of Chaos. The crash above is part of the permanent exhibition at the site. The petition mentioned was in response to an effort by Ehrmann’s neighbors to shut down his admittedly scary abode. Happily, the petition worked and the Abode of Chaos keeps alive its entropic vitality.
