This Art Piece Made Out Of Hardcore Porn Is On Display At Queen's Park

So apparently pornography can be art after all. According to 680 News and City News, it has been right under our nose, here in the city of Toronto, for close to three weeks.

The 'Sacred Circle XII' appears to be a beautiful mandala-like mosaic at first glance. Take just a couple steps closer and it doesn't take long to notice the jarring images of women in very compromising positions that make up the mosaic. The piece is on display at The John B. Aird Gallery, just steps away from the Legislative Assembly at Queen's Park, as a part of the 30 under 30 exhibit.

The artist, French-Canadian Rosalie Maheux's, response to the sudden attention? A big fat 'duh!' She told City News that 'it's kind of like a feminist comment. As a woman, I am using other women's bodies in other ways than pornographic, because I use it to make a beautiful kind of circle." and that her goal all along was 'to create a reaction."

The gallery has since started posting 'Warning' signs in the exhibit to warn of mature content. What do you think, will you be checking it out? Insert blushing emoji face here.
