Eleven Animated GIFs from the Miami Performance International Festival (NSFW)

See Five Freaky Artists at the Miami Performance International Festival.

Paintings are stupid. Sculptures are lame. Installations suck.

Performance art is where it's at.

If you've never seen a naked lady smash a bunch of eggs on a slip-n-slide, or a girl deep throat a plastic chicken, then you probably missed the fourth and final day of the Miami Performance International Festival at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. It was awesome. It was amazing. And we've got the animated GIFs to prove it.

Orestes De La Paz stuck his head in a microwave after crawling 30 feet on his belly all wound up in plastic.

Next, mud guy got wild while mud girl Nathalie Alfonso slapped mud on their ground sculpture. Meanwhile, drum guy played drums.

Title: Adaptation Plastic and Clay

Stephan Nesvacil did a bunch of rituals with smoke powder and holy water. Then he climbed out of a garbage bag, tied string to people in the audience, and then cut the ties. Next, he taped his bag to a floor fan, taped the fan to his shoulders, and thanked God.

Title: Becoming Quickened By The Supreme

Here's Pip Brant, collecting dollars to let people shove their hands into a box she had strapped to her chest. People probably assumed they'd be feeling her tits, but instead there were real, live chickens in her box.

Title: Chick Wagon

Belaxis Buil planted one foot in the dirt, then balanced on one leg until she crumpled to the ground while performing a leg lift, then lifted herself back up to one leg. Then she took off all her clothes and buried them.

Title: Flora The Magnificent

Christine Brault dipped her hands in a bowl of water then sprinkled a bunch of lines of sand on the ground. Then she invited the crowd to smear red ink on her body, wherever they wanted. And then she licked it all off.

Title: Latina Del Norte II

Jessica Hirst had her audience members place eggs on a Slip 'n Slide (birth canal?), then got naked and rolled down the slide to break a bunch of them with her naked body. Then she sat like a yogi holding a whole egg, and then got up, and placed it on an altar.

Title: Nevertheless

Next, Irene Loughlin got naked and wrapped herself in a sheet. She drank from her red plastic chicken, then passed it around to the crowd till it was empty. Then she blew that plastic chicken like a horn, deep throated it, and nuzzled it between her breasts.

Title: Borderline/The Artist Is Not Present II

Finally, there were a whole bunch of chicks spinning around in white skirts.
