Mattress Girl Gets Slapped Around By Dominatrix, Simple-Minded Leftists Call it Art

One of the biggest stories on this site last year concerned the so-called Mattress Girl, Emma Sulkowicz. After her cringe-inducing Carry That Weight “art project,” she put out a porno that supposedly simulated her alleged rape. Needless to say, this woman might be clinically insane. And, if you needed any more proof of that, look no further than her latest “art project.”

Broadly wrote it up, and it may be the most unintentionally comedic post of the year so far.

At the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, Sulkowicz’s hair was a bright pink. In the second floor gallery, guests milled around looking at various projections, photographs and documents, and other works of art by Sulkowicz’s peers. But what provoked the most intrigue was Sulkowicz’s tableau: right by the open-bar wine table was a large rug; upon it, a single chair with a seated, bearded man wearing a suit and a tie emblazoned with the Whitney Museum’s logo.

Sulkowicz, wearing a black coat and nude high heels, was looking out a nearby window, holding a hot pink Nalgene. Two beams hung from the ceiling. A crowd slowly formed around the artist and her set, including a college-aged girl wearing a handmade T-shirt the read “Team Emma.”

Go on…

“What good is art hung on the wall of a sinking ship?” Sulkowicz asks when we first meet three weeks before her performance. She’s explaining a Bertolt Brecht essay she read for the Whitney program, wherein he compared the nation to a sinking ship.

“If our country is falling to pieces and you have artists running around saying they’re political artists, but really their art is hanging on a sinking ship, the ship is still sinking,” Sulkowicz explains. “I was thinking a lot about this—is it really possible for political artists to make work that makes the ship stop from sinking?”

Such pompous pretend profundity from the amateur pornographer.

As Sulkowicz explored that question in relation to performance art, she realized that by design, every sinking ship has a sinking woman on its masthead. “So, I told my classmates I was going to wear an American flag bikini and hang from the wall of the gallery in the shape of a figurehead of a ship, making a statement about the impotence of artwork during our given circumstances.”

As she developed this idea, Sulkowicz began incorporating her thoughts on art as an institution. “[I chose] to have a white man tie me up while wearing a business suit with a Whitney necktie, while I wear a Whitney ISP thong bikini,” Sulkowicz said. Her intense questioning of art and politics, the two worlds that surround her, resulted in The Ship is Sinking, 2017.

As I said in the open, batshit. This is what passes for art in some demented circles.

As the performance started, this man in a suit, named Master Avery, started to berate Sulkowicz. “Your boobs are too small,” he spat. “You can’t even stand up straight.” He pulled a long, gnarled rope out of a black leather bag and started tying intricate knots around her upper thigh. Once the knots covered both of Sulkowicz’s legs, Master Avery started around her waist, moving her body as he worked quickly. At one point, the rope almost hit Sulkowicz’s eye. After a few shocked blinks, she looked up at the audience and laughed…

 After what seemed like days—but was was really about 45 minutes—Master Avery had completely tied Sulkowicz up to a large wooden beam. Using a pulley system attached to the ceiling, he used his whole body to lift her from the ground, and after a few tries, Sulkowicz was suspended with her arms and legs wrapped around the beam, rendering her immobile. The rope visibly cut into her skin as Master Avery took off his belt and started hitting her with it.

Wait, we’re getting to the best part…

Later, she’s taken down from the ceiling but hung back up. The second time around, Master Avery’s beatings became more intense. At one point, he called out to the crowd, asking if anyone else wanted to partake. To everyone’s surprise, one man in the audience volunteered, walking up to Sulkowicz and slapping her hard across the face.

I wouldn’t be able to resist slapping this silly c*** myself, if offered. I would like to shake this anonymous man’s hand.

But hold on, there’s more!

Later, I ran into the concerned viewer in line for the bathroom. They told me that they had just come from a workshop on combating gender violence, and added that there should have been a trigger warning before Sulkowicz’s performance. But the viewer was left perturbed and questioning what it meant to be an unsuspecting spectator to such violence against women, taking their time to enunciate and practically spit out the word “violence.” 

I could not have come up with a better payoff punchline if I was making the whole thing up. The write-up reads like a parody of a parody, which I guess is accurate.

This seriously reads like a piece from an anti-feminist version of The Onion. Are we sure Emma isn’t being paid by someone to create this comedy gold? I’m hoping at least the writer of this piece got paid, because it was the funniest thing I’ve read in awhile.

    What a sad and broken person.

    • Grust

      She lied about being raped which pretty much ruined someone’s life. She’s not a sad, broken person. She’s just an evil sick twisted monster praised by an evil cult.

      • JasonC5

        It’s shit like this that causes mgtow yet this crap is downplayed by quite a few in the anti-fem/ anti-sjw side. They think such worries are unwarranted until it happens to the individual complaining about it.

  • This cunt should be in jail for falsely accusing someone of rape in the first place.

    • I just wonder how her victim’s faring. Disgusting to think that that poor guy’s likely screwed for life while this bitch, as much as we may mock the idea, is continually being revered among some self-felating “art” community.

      • Silence Dogood

        Post-modernism is absolute garbage. It takes little to no skill and trades primary in shock value. People are just too polite/afraid or pretentious to be honest that they either don’t understand (there’s nothing to understand) or don’t like it. We’re not allowed to criticize women after all, especially women of color! -_-

  • Celerity

    …Thereby proving that women acting out like this just need a little smacking around so they learn boundries. Janet would be proud.

    • Silence Dogood

      Damn it, Janet!

  • Emil Åslund

    I think the biggest joke last year was her getting awarded by NOW.
    Falsely accusing someone of rape is a brave thing!

    • Grust

      The fact that she got an award for ruining a man’s life with false rape charges tells you all you need to know about NOW. The biggest joke isn’t her getting the award. The joke is NOW itself.

      • Emil Åslund

        The prize isn’t even worth the glass it’s made of.

    • Silence Dogood

      B-b-b-b-but muh “starting a conversation”, you know, that constant line dragged out every time there’s a false rape allegation – men can’t be victims when a women needs to be viewed as a victim. Something something patriarchy. Depraved is what it is.

  • AverageJoe1987

    So porn without the nudity and public penetration is “art” now according to halfwits in the “art” community?

    • Grust

      As long as it caters to SJWism, yes.

  • Frank Rizzo

    Seems this article, the bike lock article, and others are no longer on TRR main page?

    • Silence Dogood

      There’s a new feature now where what seem to be the three latest or most relevant articles share the headline space – there’s a little arrow next to the title that will let you scroll. I only just noticed this today.

  • Danlantic

    Dominatrix, like aviatrix, is a woman. The title confused me.

    Sulkowicz did not make a video reenacting her “rape”. I’ve seen a description of it. She and some guy expressionessly go into a room and take off their clothes. He mounts her and makes a few strokes of vaginal intercourse. She orders him to change. He does a few strokes of anal intercourse. She says, stop, and he leaves the room. The clip is ttitled “Ceci n’est pas un viol” which is French for “This is not a rape”. It is cliché “art” because it has some irrelevant French in it.

    This was something she published and here is her art babble explanation:

    “If you watch this video without my consent, then I hope you reflect on your reasons for objectifying me and participating in my rape, for, in
    that case, you were the one who couldn’t resist the urge to make Ceci
    N’est Pas Un Viol about what you wanted to make it about: rape. Please,
    don’t participate in my rape. Watch kindly.”

    • Silence Dogood

      There was a time when someone like her would have been burnt at the stake. I almost miss those days.

  • Silence Dogood

    What deplorable nonsense masquerading as “art”. That is not art – that is her fetishizing her obvious need for attention and exhibitionism (nothing wrong with exhibitionism, so long as it’s in the right place – an art gallery is not the right place). And the “need for a trigger warning” hahaha! And those “they/them” pronoun correction – that is too fucking perfect. The cherry on top of the special snowflake sundae.

    Are we really sure thats a “girl”?
