Vanessa Beecroft is a very bizarre performance artist, photographer and painter. Most of her pieces generally include large numbers of women (sometimes semi-nude or wearing strange bodypaint) wearing high heels who stand or walk in the gallery until their feet hurt so much they can no longer stand. They slowly all sink to the ground and end up lying on the floor. The bodies are grotesque and alienated, and apparently watching the performances is actually quite boring since so little happens, but the photgraphs of the pieces are pretty interesting.
