Chris Burden because he has balls!  The guy shot himself for one of his works.

And look up Vito Acconci.

my favourite performance artist is James Thiérrée. (Son of the folks behind Le Cirque Invisible, grandson of Charlie Chaplin, great-grandson of Eugene O'Neill. It's in his blood.)

He's beautiful. Go and see him if you get the chance. He tours all over (he's currently touring his 4th full-length show 'Raoul', it premiered last year at the Barbican. It's kind of like.. a Samuel Beckett play done by a schizophrenic runaway from Cirque du Soleil.)
