Giant poops and chocolate turds 

Meet poop sculptures by the Viennese art collective Gelatin at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

“There were four giant turds inside the 16,000 square feet of museum space. One mammoth piece of feces was reminiscent of a long, winding steel sculpture by Richard Serra. One was a brown spiral. Another resembled an enormous chocolate chip. Yet another featured intertwined layers with a gap in between that I could have crawled through, if I had been brave enough,” stated Michel de Groot for The New York Times.

This exhibition was created to break taboos, make people laugh, and open new sides of your body.

Wolfgang Gantner, Ali Janka, Florian Reither and Tobias Urban spent two weeks building up the poop sculptures in the contemporary galleries at the Boijmans.

These exhibitions are pretty much scandalous, but the director  of the Boijmans, Sjarel Ex, feels okay about it,  “It could be the first time that all art enemies and art lovers can agree about one thing.”

“You can approach it from the field of sculpture, you can approach it as an installation that was tailor-made for these big rooms,” he said, “and you can see it as a provocation and then explore what side of you is provoked. That’s also very interesting. You can also see it as an intimate experience you keep only for yourself.”

Skin-toned “naked costumes”

One of four artists mentioned above, Tobias Urban explained why people can choose any kind of body to wear as a cloth at the exhibition:

“It’s a way of getting them out of their clothes without undressing them,” Mr. Urban said. “With clothes, you know immediately that someone is a banker or something else and when you get them out of their own clothes they can be anybody.”

The interesting fact is that skin-toned “naked costumes” include all shapes and sizes of male and female genitalia.
