"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"


The Gagosian Gallery of London is currently exhibiting Vienna-based artist Franz West*s "Les Pommes D*Adam" at Place Vendôme.

Their theme is taken from the "anatomical feature known as the Adam's apple".
Well, so far for the official statement! To everyone else they just look like huge dildos, and fit in quite nicely with the already famous erection of the Colonne Vendôme, spitting out its Napoleon...
