Art appreciation 101: The Lindsay Lohan edition
Good morning and welcome to Art Appreciation class. Today we will be taking a look at the intriguing installation "Lindsay Lounging" from Italian Vanity Fair. While you may be excused for thinking that Lindsay Lohan is a rough-looking 49-year-old cast member on Real Housewives of Ed Hardy's Dreams, she is in fact a 25-year-old former actress trying to rehabilitate her image. She choses to emphasize her youth by lounging with a lecherous teddy bear and a golden skull. These two props also brings attention to the futility of existence and serve as a lovely contrast to the couch borrowed from the bordello next door. In an interesting twist, no one at the magazine's art department could be bothered to get rid of the wires and the crappy house seen from the window. Reality is very chic right now. This concludes today's lecture. PS: We speak no Italian here at the Institute of Photos You Wouldn't Want to See Your Sister In, so I'm sure the headline does not in fact say: "Lindsay Lohan: She-male or fat ho?"
