Behold, A Glorious Inflatable Turd Sculpture

This artwork you see before you in a 51-foot-tall inflatable turd sculpture called “Complex Pile.” The inflatable turd sculptor is named Paul McCarthy, although I originally read his name as Paul McCartney and was freaking out for several moments about how and when Sir Paul McCartney diverged from music to inflatable poop sculptures. I was having a hard time processing that. Let me tell you, I am relieved. Anyway, Paul McCarthy‘s other work included a giant inflatable ketchup bottle and a giant inflatable butt plug. Clearly this man is a genius. “Complex Pile” is on display in Hong Kong right now, if you feel like checking out a humongous shit. [Laughing Squid]

Modern Art Desserts: For Those Who Like It Sweet, Difficult And A Little Bit Pretentious

Yes a beautiful new book by Caitlin Freeman called Modern Art Desserts: Recipes for Cakes, Cookies, Confections, and Frozen Treats Based on Iconic Works of Art goes the extra mile to make someone feel like an idiot when you serve them dessert.

From a Fritsch Ice Cream Sandwich to a Koons White Hot Chocolate (to many treats that ref stuff that’s way more obscure) the recipes seem made to delight five people who work at MOMA and everyone taking an art history survey class. Read more on Dumb As A Blog…

“Everything” Perfume Is The Perfect Scent For Indecisive People

MacBook Perfume
Would you wear it? Read More »

Have you tried shopping for perfume lately? The selection is so extensive it can be a daunting process. To make things easier for you, Dutch artists Lenert and Sander have created a new scent called “Everything,” which is a mixture of every single one of the 1,400 perfumes that were released last year. Apparently it smells exactly as you’d expect: “We think Everything smells of your average fragrance department store — that wall of smell that hits you when you enter it,” the duo explains. Well, that sounds like my worst nightmare. “Everything” is making the rounds at perfumeries and art shows, and isn’t available for purchase, but perhaps you could whip up your own version by boiling down a bunch of magazine perfume samples into a pulpy, musky soup?

If Zoo Animals Were Sartorialists

If zoo animals were sartorialists, they’d something look like this. Yago Partal’s Zoo Portraits series imagines the fashion possibilities for every species.  And now we know that ostriches look fetching in bowler hats. It must be their long necks. You can see more fashion forward zoo animals or buy prints here. [Laughing Squid]

Tilda Swinton Naps In Glass Box At MOMA

Our love for Tilda Swinton knows no bounds, which is why we’re prepared to ditch everything the minute we hear the actress has resumed napping in a glass box at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. The “live performance” titled “The Maybe” was first staged at the Serpentine Gallery in London in 1995, with subsequent performances in Rome and Paris; Sunday’s performance at MOMA was a surprise to visitors and some museum staff, but MOMA higher ups have apparently been working with Swinton and bringing “The Maybe” to the museum for years. Said the museum about the piece:

An integral part of The Maybe’s incarnation at MoMA in 2013 is that there is no published schedule for its appearance, no artist’s statement released, no no museum statement beyond this brief context, no public profile or image issued. Those who find it chance upon it for themselves, live and in real—shared—time: now we see it, now we don’t.

Wake up and smell the vagina, University of Cincinnatti. On Thursday, two student groups displayed “Re-envisioning The Female Body,” a temporary art show of 12 billboard-sized photographs of vulvas, on the campus commons. A student photographer photographed the images [NSFW], which are displayed on campus alongside quotes about sexuality, health, and reproductive choice. The show followed a panel discussion on campus from a local Planned Parenthood.

Not surprisingly, the campus Students For Life group — known for posting explicit, bloody photographs on campus which purport to be of aborted fetuses — are steamed. Keep reading »

Art School Confiscates 68 Vials Of Student’s Sperm

genitals

Are you eating? Because I can’t ask you to read a blog post about an art student who stored 68 vials of his own sperm in a school fridge without making sure.

Marc Bradley Johnson, 23, who attends the School of Visual Arts in New York City, planned an exhibition called “Take This Sperm And Be Free Of Me,” displaying 68 vials of his own spunk in a fridge, which he “harvested” himself, that visitors could take home. The jizz was meant to represent “creation, parenting, desire, masculinity, fantasy and reality.” He even agreed to microwave the sperm vials to kill off pathogens (and, bonus, achieve that freshly-harvested feeling of warmth!).
