RIP Chris Burden (1946-2015)

Chris Burden (April 11, 1946 – May 10, 2015) was an American artist working in performance, sculpture, and installation art.


Video: Shoot (1971), in which Burden was shot by a rifle in his left arm by an assistant from a distance of about five meters, an early example of body art.

His later work is less harsh.
