Artist trolls the Met Gala by showing up naked in a clear box

Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich made quite the entrance at the Met Gala, but it didn't get the kind of coverage as the reality TV toilet selfie. In fact, the artist had no coverage until security laid a beautiful drape across him and had him arrested.


Police said Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich, 41, was dropped off nude and wedged inside a clear fiberglass box outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art along Fifth Ave. near E. 83rd St. around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

His two handlers left the lewd display in a restricted area for the star-studded celebration, prompting the Met's security team to quickly cover it with a white sheet and drag it out.

Cops descended on the bizarre stunt and demanded the lanky 6-foot-2 performer step out of the box. Pavlov allegedly refused and firefighters were forced to cut open the see-through prop, said Sgt. Brendan Ryan.

Looks as if he filmed it himself from inside, so let's hope that comes out soon, too.
