I dig the second one! The Sydney photographer responsible, Dean Sewell, said "Jesus was crucified to pay for the sins of man, and Corey was crucified by the media to pay for the sins of the MySpace generation". So that's a bit of awesome in the middle of an overwhelmingly boring exhibition that was last year responsible for a statue of the Virgin Mary in a burqa and a hologram of Christ that morphed into Osama bin Laden, and was labelled as "gratuitously offensive" by noted art critic Former Prime Minister John Howard.
