Nate Hill, the brazen New York performance artist, may have just released his most shocking piece yet. Hill, a married man with a kid on the way, is addressing his domestic life with “The Hunt Storybook,” a performance in which he chases his dog dressed up in a rabbit costume that is—wait for it—covered in period blood. The period blood comes from women outside his marriage; the piece is supposed to is recreate “the hunt” that, you know, all men secretly crave.

You may know Hill from a couple different pieces that made their rounds around the web, most notably Trophy Scarves—a piece in which Hill, as a black man, wore naked white women around his neck. He amassed tens of thousands of followers on an Instagram account for that, and he continues the trend of cross-media integration with this piece by accompanying it with a children’s storybook, which he has also put on Rap Genius.

I traveled to Hill’s apartment in East Harlem and made a video of him performing “The Hunt,” which you can watch below. Try not to puke. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
