Anyone who’s ever wondered what Iggy Pop’s grundle looks like won’t have to wonder much longer.
Paste Magazinereports that the Stooges frontman and current Josh Homme collaborator donated his remarkably well-toned anatomy to an ambitious art project last weekend. As arranged by London’s Jeremy Deller, 21 artists gathered at the New York Academy of Art to gaze at a stark nude James “Iggy Pop” Osterberg — with his untamed, greying pubic jungle prominently on display — and committed the sight to canvas.
The wares of their labors see the light of day at the Brooklyn Museum this upcoming fall.
“His body is central to an understanding of rock music and its place within American culture,” says Deller, according to Paste. “His body has witnessed much and should be documented.”
No doubt. The world must know what 20 years of hourly hard drug use followed by 20 years of intense, daily yoga training looks like in the buff.
