From the ‘now we’ve seen it all’ file comes this: for his latest exhibition, creatively titled Blow Job – Trabalho de Sopro (Blow Job – Work of Blowing), Brazilian artist Fernando de La Rocque created the images with religious and political themes using, wait for it, cannabis smoke. The artist says of his work: ‘more important than freedom to smoke marijuana is the freedom to think about it and make art with it. Polemic issues divide opinions, forcing people to think and debate. Inertia is useless when we want to overcome something’. Ah, yes.
