What a Piece of Shit

Talk about getting your hands dirty. When New Zealand artist Sam Mahon thinks someone is full of shit he really backs those claims up.  Upset with the fact that New Zealand Environment Minister Nick Smith has a diarrhetic approach on dairy farm pollution, artist Mahon staged a sit-in and began crafting this number two.

Number two as in $2,220.00, which just so happens to be what this bust (it doesn’t have the secret button to unlock the private bath house) sold for to the anonymous Internet buyer. Mahon really went to town on this shit (he didn’t grow his own, he collected it from a dairy farm) – going so far as to grind it in a coffee grinder, mix it with resin, and even polish the finished product with beeswax. But Mahon didn’t stop there.

Mahon, in what is sure to become an ever-escalating shit storm, outlined all the other fun aspects – “The sculpture has a hollow head, which is very fitting. It is highly polished and sits on the stand slightly to the right of center.” It’s a very Duchampian commentary, but what ever happened to the good ole flaming bag of poo?
