Naked Performance Artist Stuck in a Tree Is As Funny As It Sounds

Hilde Krohn Huse got stuck in a tree and that was probably the best thing that ever happened to her. Huse did some performance art piece where she hung tied from a tree. You don’t get it? Then you don’t know art. Huse’s video page describes her art:

In the film ‘Hanging in the Woods’ the viewer can witness the breakdown between performance and reality as the indented performance goes wrong and the performer is stuck hanging from the tree without being able to free herself or any visible means of help or escape.

Uhh, ok. And it means what exactly? Luckily she did it naked. That makes the video even funnier.

Huse got stuck up in the tree for three-and-a-half hours which I’m sure she never imagined would happen. A true artist suffering for her art. Thankfully, her friend heard her calls.

One of Ms. Huse’s friends eventually came to her aid after hearing the artist’s screams. Fortunately, Ms. Huse escaped with only a cut on the ankle and this story. The ad-libbed video, which is described as a “breakdown between performance and reality,” has all the hallmarks of a classic piece of video art: humor, nudity, and risk of bodily harm.

Ironically, this stunt got Huse selected to some fancy shmancy art show.

…Ms. Huse’s video was chosen for the prestigious Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition, where the work of 37 promising fine arts graduates in the U.K. is showcased.

That’s pretty much all you need to know about art. End up fucking up your own art piece and you get even more recognition.

Video NSFW.
