Janine Antoni - Gnaw (1992)

So Janine Antoni took a 600 pound block on chocolate and a 600 pound block of lard, gnawed off some corners and sides with her own teeth, then fashioned the chewed lard into lipstick and the the chewed chocolate into heart shaped chocolate boxes without any chocolate in them. The lard and chocolate left behind on the large blocks are still as delicious today as they were in 1992.

Accolades go to Lydia A. for this highly ambitious two-part caption. (1992)

Cai Guo-Qiang - Inopportune: Stage One (2004-08)

It took a Chinese artist to uncover how badassedly patriotic a car bomb can look. Way to go Cai. (2004-08)

Once again, huge thanks to Oriane S. for this quality submission.
