Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress — It’s Been Done

Lady Gaga caused a stir at the MTV Video Awards on Sunday night with her Franc Fernandez meat dress. Montreal artist Jana Sterbak courted controversy back in the 1980s with her Vanitas: Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic.

Considering that Gaga was born one year before Sterbak’s 1987 Vanitas installation (and she probably doesn’t follow Canadian Arts Funding brouhahas), I doubt she was copying. I just want to remind everybody of my massive accumulation of useless knowledge.
