I got caught

A MoMa security guard caught me taking a photograph of a human installation at the Marina Abramović retrospective. I fled the exhibit stashing my cell phone in my pocket without saving the photo in question.
The installation is most noted for naked performances of human sculptures.
A stunned crowd clustered some twenty feet away watching in wonder at the naked man and woman obstructing a narrow passageway to another room. The scent of perspiration hung in the air. One brave patron squeezed through the tense space. The male performer's penis swung in the air as it brushed against the patron's clothes.
"Gavino" asked if I would have faced the male or female performer had I walked passed them.
