Bert Rodriguez – Where You End And I Begin

It is safe to say that Bert Rodriguez worked harder than any artist exhibited at the Frieze Art Fair in London. Appointments were taken for 10 minute foot massages given by the artist at the Fredric Snitzer Gallery booth. I found out about this daring performance over at C-Monster, one of the best art blogs around. There is an interview with the artist in which he affirms stereotypes about different feet from different places.

This was a wonderful idea. Not only was Rodriguez able to refresh the tired feet of fair-goers but he undoubtedly was able to lay his hands on some influentials in a familiar way.

Here’s the quote from Pulp Fiction:

“I’m not sayin’ he was right, but
you’re sayin’ a foot massage don’t
mean nothing, and I’m sayin’ it
does. I’ve given a million ladies
a million foot massages and they
all meant somethin’. We act like
they don’t, but they do.”

Head over to the website of Bert Rodriguez and you’ll find a link to his flickr account that has photos of more feet than you may care to see.
