If you spotted George Bush crawling through the streets of Manhattan, would you kick him in the ass? That is precisely what British performance artist Mark McGowan is inviting you to do as he wanders through New York City on his hands and knees for 72 hours while disguised as the American commander-in-chief.
Sporting a “kick my ass” sign on his posterior, McGowan says he is “offering the people of America, New York and visitors a service… a kind of therapeutic engagement. Hopefully people will be able to come and kick me as hard as they like, and gain some comfort in the fact that they can say I kicked George in the ass. On a more serious note this is a protest against George Bush and his policies and i am expecting injuries, i just hope not to severe.”
The butt-numbing journey will begin at the Scope Art Fair on Thursday, February 27. For more info, visit MarkMcGowan.org.
