Amusing artist

Lilly McElroy does some pretty funny work. She has one project where she literally throws herself at men. The pictures are rather interesting.

I also enjoy her video work. There's one where she draws a square in chalk on the ground on some city street and guards the territory. Eventually a pedestrian begins to help her police the space. And some of the interactions she has with the public are really great. In another piece she hugs strangers on the street.

I think she might be related to my family because she has another video that's her and some other girl trading punches on a sofa. It's called "one for one" and seems like something Mary and I would do when we got bored.
