The Picture of Dorian Gray Vs. The Mattress of Emma Sulkowicz (Now She’s Made a Rape Porn)

Emmas Sulkowicz Transforms her Life into a Work of Art: Resemblances to Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray?

[Warning: Explicit Sexual Content and Strong Language]

“Why did they do it?” the moralist asked. “Because they could,” answered the pragmatist. ‘Mattress Girl’ Emma Sulkowicz gave the term ‘attention whore’ a whole new meaning – Rape-victim turns porn-art-activist and shocks a nation, quickly rises to global feminist icon and revolutionary (and she only just graduated from college – eat THAT, critics!)

AMERICA – The internet talks about the posterior of ‘Mattress Girl’, Emma Sulkowicz, a student of the liberal arts, who rose to planetary fame for carrying her dorm mattress in public for several months. The activism was arranged to shame and humiliate her ex-boy-friend, German Paul N., after he allegedly “raped” her during the last two minutes of their eight minutes otherwise consensual act of licking, sucking, and humping. The German man stuck it up her rear, she said. Outch. He was “acquitted” by an internal campus investigation, and the police didn’t pursue charges against Paul N.; but not a man in the world could have anticipated what followed next: Emma took her disgraced mattress to the streets, to the campus, and to the press conferences.

“There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Oho, a ‘Sexual Revolution on Campus’. More like lynch journalism and media porn.

ATTENTION SEEKING

We need to stress this: Columbia university’s leadership, perhaps intimidated by the mattress-media and angry feminists across the nation, tolerated her campus activism, some even say the university supported her shaming campaign by allowing “Carry the Weight” to fly off as her ‘graduation project’. Green-lighted by the art world and the Establishment, US media spun her into a revolutionary and savior of humanity. Meanwhile, conspiracy theorists celebrated this gift from the gods of absurdity. Emma will soon get her own ‘Paul-N.-SMAASH’ action figure. The CIA considers planting ‘mattress revolutions’ all over the Middle East. Meanwhile, Germany was scolded for training rapists and sending them off to America. “This is not OK, Germany!”

While this is all highly controversial (and often sad) stuff on so many levels, with Paul N.’s balls symbolically hanging around her neck, she refuses to let the world forget she was having a bad time with his dick. From the legal to the ethical realm, her huge mattress, her bold actions, her perseverance, and her absolute determination to bring her case to justice, have earned her respect and admiration across America (and your authors, too) –a society obsessed with violence, disruption, and revenge porn, which, in case you don’t use social media, currently engages in a full-blown, Kafkaesque gender war against… college males.

This may all very well be part of the internet’s ‘hate’-culture. Recently, a hard-core feminist and journalist from Rolling Stone magazine was actively looking for “rape culture” stories on campuses, and found a gossip girl who was willing to fabricate a nasty story about her “gang-rape” at a fraternity at the University of Virginia. The entire US media of matter cried ‘Hang ’em high!’. No fact-checking. No shame.

The key words here are SJW (Social Justice Warriors), Lynch Media, Feminazis, Youtube, Tumblr, and Twitter ‘terrorism’, and reckless campaigning against what many minorities perceive as ‘White Man’s Privilege’. But I digressed a bit. Now, Emma Sulkowicz graduated this year, and Paul N.’s said he is going to sue… not her, but the University of Colombia! ER, whatever. Not ready yet to let him off the hook (he was never expelled from university as she demanded), Emma last month decided to stick in another one. She found a director, and summoned a ‘volunteer rapist’, to re-enact the/an incident, only that it was “consensual” this time, she says, unless we (the viewers) wanted to see it as a reference to her actual rape, in which case we, too, are rapists, too. And it gets better.

“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

THIS IS NOT A RAPE

To underline the surrealism of it, she called her project ‘Ceci N’est pas un viol‘, French for ‘This is not a rape’, in a nod to the ‘Treachery of Images’ by Belgian painter Rene Magritte. You may recall the painting (or derivations of it) from school or from the popular media. It clearly shows a pipe but has written “This isn’t a pipe” (in French). Critics may ridicule Ms. Sulkowicz all they want for her ‘language games’, but the fact is she has put some thought into her craft. Otherwise, she could have simply called it: “This is how rape looks like in college.”

Here’s what she said about her ‘sex tape’, mirrored at Jezebel.com. Or, if you are a daredevil, you could invite your buddies over from the Gender Studies department, and visit the project’s own website –cecinestpasunviol.com. There, the artist produces a foreword – some kind of ‘instructional manual’ on how to view the fucking. This brings us from activism and surrealism to another realm in the arts –hedonism:

The trigger warning to her work of art starkly reminded your author of Oscar Wilde’s bewildering preface to ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. In the Gothic novel, youthful Dorian Gray transforms his life into a piece of art, by doing whatever he pleases without fearing the consequences of madness and moral decay. The high-born, well-to-do gentleman will not experience the ramifications of guilt or shame or remorse for his immoral actions because he possesses his ‘portrait’ which absorbs all his soul-crushing pains, all the wicked horrors, and all the infinite regrets he amasses over his life-time. He stays young and beautiful (and does not age) – like a permanent; while his portrait ages on his behalf and visibly atones for his mortal sins. Wilde’s masterpiece explores morality in the arts (or better, the lack of it) and is probably one of the most dangerous allegories in Anglophone literature, secretly celebrating moral corruption, vanity, and exploitation. (If one is young and beautiful, one can get away with murder).

“You will always be fond of me. I represent to you all the sins you never had the courage to commit.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

LIVE LIKE A WORK OF ART

In the final act, Dorian climbs up the old attic to steal a glance at his portrait, only to find a rotten zombie staring back at him. Terrified, he attempts to ‘destroy’ the picture, but that breaks the spell and artist and artwork reverse their roles. After the first edition of the novel became a scandal and a financial success, Oscar Wilde decided to add the now infamous preface, or ‘trigger warning’ if you will, which is contemptuous of critics and moralists, but also, more importunate, encodes for us the tragic of Dorian Gray. Art is neither moral nor immoral. Art is never at fault. It is about what we put into a work of art; which is often precisely what we get out of it. The critic sees a pervert or a hypocrite staring back at him from what is but a mirror to his soul: “The nineteenth century dislike of realism is the rage of Caliban seeing his own face in a glass. The nineteenth century dislike of romanticism is the rage of Caliban not seeing his own face in a glass.” So much of Oscar Wilde’s defense against the moralists and philistines of his time.

Emma Sulkowicz attempts, I claim, a similar defense in her own foreword to her sex tape. Although we clearly see her sucking an erected penis and getting anal-penetrated by a physically unappealing, fat man (all of which seems totally unnecessary to put herself through, if it wasn’t for attention-seeking), she cunningly points out that ‘art’ is ‘art’ and that is that; more even: WE, the critics, are the (mind) rapist, too, by watching this porn, she writes, because she never gave consent to it, even if what we are looking at is just a carefully staged re-enactment of said crime. Yes, in some hidden attic at Columbia must hang a portrait of Emma Sulkowicz – aging, fading. Or, maybe it is just a decaying picture of Paul…

“When critics disagree the artist is in accord with himself.”
― Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

HOW FAR WILL SHE GO?

So, is it performance art? Sure. ‘Everyact’ is art. Your author remembers a stint at Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2003, attending an exhibition of ‘Der Geile Wotan’ by Vienna ‘actionist’ Otto Muehl. ‘ What has been seen cannot be made unseen, regrettably. Actionists’ are often people shitting on each other heads, drinking piss, and having orgies. The competition is though and bizarre, mainly from Germany and Japan, so everyone is pushing their limits. There’s a man in China who sliced out his own rib for a more ‘open China’.

Many ‘actionists’ suffer from mental illness, rejection, or trauma, just like Ms. Sulkowicz. (Otto Muehl became the leader of an authoritarian cult, and got convicted for sex with minors.) This all has nothing to do with ‘Mattress Girl’ the person, of course, but at the same time has everything to do with her choice of performances. How far will she go?

Maybe it wasn’t simply her carrying a mattress, but a demon in that mattress who dragged her along and whispered
into her ears: “Most people die and discover when it is too late
that the only things
one never regrets
are one’s mistakes.”
We are going to have a blast at life, won’t we?

Interesting review by Milo Yiannopoulos (Rating: Unfappable): “This tape is not a depiction of rape, even a fictional one. […] It is a clumsily choreographed exercise in self-love designed to propel Sulkowicz into the public eye again, just as her original false allegations and mattress-carrying did before. It obliterates the line between guilty pleasure and revolting spectacle.” Case closed:
