“Your art is crap”

“Actually, your crap is my art.”

Potty art in London:

    An artist has created a usable public toilet in a glass cube to challenge the curiosity – and bravery – of people passing London’s Tate Britain gallery.
    Monica Bonvicini said visitors would have to “defy their own embarrassment” to use the minimalist cubicle, made from one-way mirrored glass.

    It is impossible to see into the toilet, which will be free to use, but the person inside can see passers-by.

    ….Ms Bonvicini, born in Italy but based in Los Angeles, is known for using her work to make people question their environment.

    The installation will open for two hours from 1800 GMT each week day, from 1400 to 1800 GMT on Saturdays and 1000 to 1800 GMT on Sundays.

    Ms Bonvicini is not alone in using a toilet to bring art to the public.

    In October, two artists opened The Toilet Gallery – a converted public loo in Kingston-upon-Thames, south-west London, showcasing young artists from across Britain. [BBC]

And they say conceptual art is dead – pshaw.
