I love me some good performance art involving food products. In the tradition of Karen Finley (the performance artist most well known for shoving a yam up her ass on stage), Melati Suryodarmo experimented with butter. In her performance piece called “EXERGIE — Butter Dance,” the Indonesian-born performance artist (who lives and works in Germany) became one with 20 blocks butter. Swaying to beat of drums in her LBD and black stiletto heels, she stomps, slips, falls and rolls in the butter. Then she gets up and does it all over again. It looks both oddly fun and extremely painful, kind of how I look when I roller skate. As for the deeper meaning of this butter dance: “Exergie” is a German word that translates to activate or exercise. Interpretations? [The Huffington Post]
