Norway artist cooked and ate own hip on 'a whim'
A Norwegian conceptual artist boiled his own hip bone on "a whim" and then ate the flesh with some potato gratin and a glass of wine. According to the artist, the meat tasted like "wild sheep".
Alexander Selvik Wengshoel, 25, made his startling claim to Nordlys newspaper at the opening of his graduation show from the Tromsø Academy of Contemporary Art.
The hip bone was displayed as part of the exhibition, as was a film of the operation to remove it.
Wengshoel told The Local that he spent a year convincing his doctors to let him film his hip replacement operation and then keep the bone. At the time he was a 21-year-old art student doing a foundation course in Oslo.
