By Natalie O'Neill. A Brooklyn artist this weekend will sit naked on a toilet in front of an audience for 10 hours to mock artsy-fartsy types — like herself. Performer Lisa Levy, 59, wants gallerygoers to squat on a second toilet and stare at her bare bod to prove that pretentiousness in the art world stinks. Levy chose to sit naked on the can because it strips her of status, which is the opposite of pretentious, she told Artnet News. Read Next. Ex-lead prosecutor can take part in Etan Patz retrial: jud

People waited for hours to sit and stare back at the performance artist and, because there was no time limit for each individual, you had no way of knowing how long it would take until you got your turn, or whether you'd even get a chance at all. A steady stream of willing participants sat with Levy on both days, though Christopher Stout said that the wait never got too long. When I arrived at around yesterday only about four people were ahead of me, and within a half an hour or so I got a chance to sit. It was all pretty casual and low-key, with lots of picture-taking and quiet chatting among the viewers, and Stout occasionally fiddled with the portable heater right by Levy's side. As you can see from the photos, the range of people who sat during the hour I was there was pretty broad, and three men stripped naked for the experience. One of these men had drawn a lengthy message onto his chest, written backwards as if done before a mirror, with a cross of sorts in the middle composed of four spurting penises. The viewer's toilet was always presented lid closed, and everyone but this guy kept it that way. The artist Ventiko also turned up, and brought her peacock Dexter with her, though the bird wasn't terribly cooperative with the lap-sitting part of the process.

Modest dressing is the best policy here. Yes, because that is generally what is best. I believe that there will be a lot more mercy than justice being dished out at the judgment. It doesn't help to know that he is terrible at being alone.
