Paris Hilton is Dead

The Paris Hilton Autopsy
The Paris Hilton Autopsy by Daniel Edwards

“Campaign to Rescue Women of Youth” featuring “The Paris Hilton Autopsy” offers a cadaveric nude Paris Hilton, laid out with twisted body and opened abdominal cavity on a coroner’s table, while her cell phone remains in her grip. The ‘unglamorous’ display which includes support material from anti-drunk driving organizations counters“the disturbingly glamorized trend of Hollywood’s ‘girls gone wild’,” according to gallery director, David Kesting.

Paris Hilton, arrested for a DUI last year, previously released a marginally effective PSA concerning drunk driving. This latest PSA includes a website by Capla Kesting, which offers high school educators an icebreaker for discussing drunk driving’s consequences. Students are encouraged to take the virtual field trip at http://www.ParisHiltonAutopsy.com to view the making of the “Paris Hilton Autopsy” and compete for prizes by writing Paris Hilton’s obituary.

From Capla Kesting Fine Art:

Daniel Edwards, the creator of the nude Britney Spears giving birth and Suri Cruise’s poop has struck again. this time with a message to underage drinkers. The Paris Hilton Autopsy is an interactive experience designed to bring the reality of drinking and driving home to youth idolizing the behavior of Hollywood’s wild girls. the boldly posed sculpture is edgy and is really evocative of Hilton’s behavior with the splayed legs, the cell phone and the tiara. her face is oddly at piece, erased of all lines and cares, almost botox like..

This exhibit also offers the interactive experience of probing deep into paris Hilton’s flesh, penetrating her abdominal cavity to participate in her autopsy. The message behind this exhibition is very necessary, but I wonder, with current views against nude art, if it will reach it’s target audience, Edward’s sculptures are fascinating and full of social commentary, edgy and raw, and I love what he is doing for nude art, I love that he is not afraid to push the boundaries of censorship, propriety and current social mores. By providing materials for educators I hope this exhibit will educate about the issues intended by the artist, but I hope it will broaden minds about nude art as well.
