I can't decide what's worse...the fact that someone somewhere considers this art or the fact that someone commissioned and paid this guy for his "artwork."

If you ask me, I'd say that Swiss museum got punk'd by that American conman, I mean, artiste. He's laughing all the way to the bank. And it's probably a Swiss bank.

Default Yep, it's Silly season!

Dutch artist (artist? ) Marcelo Segall took things even further by collecting the turds of his wife and kids, and by casting them into resin:

Me faltan las palabras...


¡Buen aproveche!

If the point of art is to provoke a reaction. Then that is very successful.

But it's just not nice.

Haha, I was looking for one of those to include in my post too - I think we need a forum upgrade

Wasn't there one in the Tate in London that the cleaners threw away thinking it had been left out for garbage
Me, I'm just jealous they thought of it first and got the money

Hey, I've just had a brainwave: instead of filling out my tax revenue forms as usual, I will cast them in resin and send them to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam! This work of contemporary art will earn me enough money to pay all my taxes.

Any little nation that charges a full years road fund licence just to drive through and wants a tenner for a bowl of spag bol deserves to be shat on from a great height!!

I frankly admit it, we have been behaving like a bunch of four-year-olds! There's the silly season for you!
