Marc-Antoine Léval‘s latest guerilla stunt outside the entrance to the 54th Venice Biennale. I’ve always liked the humour and brazen nature of (aka “The Immaterial Art Emperor”Léval’s work. This particular performance prompted voices of disapproval from a morally and politically correct crowd, “Ai Weiwei did not authorize this!”  Just the sort of participation the work demands.
