Inflatable dog poo sculpture wreaks havoc

A modern art exhibit has wreaked havoc after blowing away from a museum in the Swiss city of Berne (Image © PA/PA Archive/PA Photos) A modern art exhibit has wreaked havoc after blowing away from a museum in the Swiss city of Berne.

The exhibit in question, titled “Complex Sh*t”, was an inflatable dog turd the size of a house.

The exhibit, a sculpture by American artist Paul McCarthy, was blown loose from its moorings at the Paul Klee centre. An inopportune gust of wind then carried it 200 yards.

The giant inflatable stool brought down an electricity line and smashed a greenhouse window before eventually coming to rest in the grounds of a children’s home.

Representatives of the museum later revealed that McCarthy’s work of art had a safety system that would automatically deflate the inflatable turd in the event of a storm but admitted the device had failed to activate.


I nearly wet myself after reading this today!!

Well, that's cheered me up this morning ! Why on earth did the artist think that anyone would be remotely interested in a giant blow up turd ?
All this modern art makes me so cross, it's just poo for gods sake ...

Still, how funny would it have been to see a big ball of poo bouncing along. Thanks for posting !
Hope you'll pop by my blog
