'Art' Fryup

Here's another "artist" in trouble with the authorities: 20-year-old Anna Sin’kova. She and a few friends thought it would be fun to hold a protest art happening against totalitarian regimes. So they made a video of her frying eggs and hotdogs over the eternal flame of a World War II monument in Kiev’s Park of Glory, Ukraine. The monument commemorates the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. When the video was posted on YouTube, people complained, including real artists. Anna was arrested and now faces up to five years in jail for desecrating the monument (title link). Silly girl. CLICK for the video. The ironic marshal music is stirring stuff.
