Some Statement

Posted in Art by homeyra on July 31, 2008

David Černý, Prague 2004

H/t to The Pagan Sphinx for posting Bad art or not?:

David Černý‘s Piss has two bronze sculptures peeing into an enclosure that is actually a map of the Cezch Republic. The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents. Visitors can interrupt them by sending SMS messages from mobile phones to a number displayed next to the sculptures. The living statue then ‘writes’ the text of the message, before carrying on as before.

    The answer to TPS’s question is: Yes, it is bad art.

    I don’t know what David Černý had in mind, but I recognize the picture. A lot of people do that to their countries!
