A Norwegian artist cooked and ate his own hip— it had been deformed all his life, and he recently had it replaced— he claimed it tasted of “wild sheep”. Alexander Selvik Wengshoel said he served the hip bone with potato gratin and a glass of wine. He decided to eat a part of his own body on “a whim”. The hip bone, removed by doctors, has gone on display as part of an exhibition. The operation to remove the bone was filmed and forms part of the exhibition also.
