Well, Lilly McElroy’s got something interesting going on – hurling herself at men. She’s being photographed at the same time, too, so this isn’t some example of latent psychosis making itself manifest, just another art project that takes boundaries and steps on them, or does away with traditional notions of what art is supposed to mean. Or maybe it was just an excuse to body check a couple dozen guys in a handful of states over the course of a few years. The photos do say something about taking a chance, sometimes a big one; regardless of what those guys say, there’s no guarantee that they’re actually going to catch McElroy.
