Su Zizi (苏紫紫), a student at Renmin University of China, stripped and dunked herself in ice-cold water after giving naked interviews.
On January 6, as part of her body art photo collection, she jumped into a big fish tank in a Beijing market, filled with ice-cold water to “experience the awful feeling of icy suffocation.”
The 19-year-old student also stripped naked for two-minute interviews with reporters.
A male reporter from Fazhi Evening News (法制晚报) said it was the most uncomfortable interview he had ever taken.
Sensing his embarrassment, Zizi took the initiative, asking the reporter how he felt facing her naked body.
“This is just work as I have to eat,” the student said of her part-time job.
She charges 3,500 yuan (US$530) for a day’s shooting.
Artist Yang Linchuan (杨林川), head of Zhongshan School of Arts and Science in Nanjing, supports Zizi, saying she is working for her school, dreams and art.
