Provocative and Disturbing Art Installation
An  artist named Plastic Jesus put up a gold-colored sculpture that looks like an Academy Awards Oscar statuette, except this one appears to be shooting up heroin.
The piece was inspired, in part, by the heroin-overdose death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, which is both provocative and seems disrespectful. But, according to the artist, it was also inspired by the heroin-overdose deaths of Plastic Jesus’ cousin and his cousin’s wife.  A statement on the 8-foot statue reads, “Hollywood’s best kept secret.”
The piece is made from a shop mannequin, painted with gold acrylic and adorned with a belt and a syringe, with the needle was replaced with wire to make it safer.
The artist’s goal is to highlight the issue of drug abuse in Hollywood, especially since it is timed perfectly with the Academy Awards ceremony that take place this weekend.
