So the London-born, Berlin-based performance artist Tino Sehgal was the recipient of this year's Golden Lion at the 2013 Venice Biennale. The artist presented a beatboxing dance work in Massimiliano Gioni’s exhibition The Encyclopedic Palace. It was an awesome work that stood out because of its originality. Short films of the work can be seen here, here, and here. However, when Sehgal received his award, he made an awkward "in-pain" face that a photog captured. Consequently, Art Info presented a new meme.
Feast your eyes on "Struggling Sehgal." Some great examples include a Super Big Gulp, Jeff Koons' "Gazing Ball" (similar to our gallery), a Jay-Z reference, and even our favorite cat Lil Bub. Click through the photos and enjoy. We also included the video of him winning the award and giving his insightful acceptance speech.
