From the Material Boy: On Wednesday, February 10, the artist Luizo Vega posed completely naked in front of the Vatican. The action of this art is part of a series of performances called “Sacré” that Vega has been developing since 2004, including productions at “La Sagrada Familia” in Barcelona and the “Sacre Coeur” in Paris, among other temples and sacred places of mankind’s history.
According to Vega: “It has been an incredibly moving experience. Due to the high level of security of the Vatican it was really difficult to carry out with the performance. The idea of having been able to achieve it fulfills me and I think it is a real contribution to freedom of expression. In the twenty-first century the human body can no longer be considered something forbidden. I propose a return to our true nature."
Soon, the cycle will have new productions in Israel, Egypt, India. Mexico and Brazil. [ SOURCE ]
I did a little research (thanks to a lead from a reader comment) and found out that this 'secret son' of Madonna is none other than Luizo Vega, a performer, photographer, videomaker, and a platic artist living in Europe. His newest project - Material Boy - is an artistic documentary that narrates the life of a bastard son of Madonna...a project that explores the limits of contemporary art in the 21st century.
Read through his blog, he's no stranger to the European (and S.A.) communities. His art, whether behind or in front of the camera, is extremely provocative and DARK (to say the least). The issue that he's the bastard prince of Madonna? Well, you'll just have to wait til summer - when the Material Boy makes his premiere in NYC on August 16th. He promises that I'll have all the info!
"On December 24th, 1973, a young 15-year-old girl named Madonna gave birth to a boy in a hospital in Michigan. Now, 36 years later, the best-ever kept secret in the history of pop music will be revealed." At least this is what we're led to believe.
I'm really not sure what to make of this! But it is intriguing to say the least. And one thing's for sure, this was no immaculate conception. No doubt the Vatican would see this spawn as a condemnation, much like Madonna's "Like A Prayer" video.
