Andrei Molodkin 2

"At the core of it is the body", said Molodkin. "Today we trade blood for oil. We fight for it, we die for it. In millions of years, our dead bodies decomposed to become oil itself".


There is a new twist in the corpse as art material thread of contemporary art history. Andrei Molodkin, has developed a technique to transform corpses into crude oil that can be turned into gas or be molded into a sculpture. The apparatus that performs the transformation takes two to three months to change the human body to oil. The waiting list for the procedure includes a BBC reporter who wants his oily remains to be turned into a sculpture of a brain and a French porn actress who wants to be turned into a sculpture of praying hands.
