ABSTRACT
RUSSIAN Pyotr Pavlensky certainly suffers for his art. After all, he attached his genitals to the ground outside the Kremlin wall in protest at the apathy and political indifference of his compatriots to President Vladimir Putin's oppressive regime. It's a charge that cannot be levelled at the performance artist; his must be ballbreaking work.
