The Sydney Biennale.

I went to Australia's Festival of Contemporary Art and I especially liked these two pieces. More than the guy who lived five days in a two-foot-square locker or the guy who filmed himself falling down two flights of steps. I sneaked these shots because photography wasn't allowed.

The taxidermed horse was called "Novecento" which means "1900" and is also the name of a movie by Bertolucci. Nevertheless, I called it "Hung Like a Horse."

The other piece was created out of artfully-hammered nails to spell out the words. I suppose everyone feels that way some days.
