On voodling poetics of waste

" The centerpiece of B’s exhibition at C is a new architectural installation created especially for Copenhagen. The installation takes the form of a giant pissoir which drains directly onto the gallery floor, and which visitors are invited to enter and use. The pissoir, like many of B’s works, evokes the monumental neoclassicism that is a recurring strand in Western art and architecture. B’s installation satirizes this tradition, but also suggests a more serious point: how power attempts to use architecture to direct behavior – and to define what it means to be a citizen – even down to the codification of pissing."

On a short visit to the local art temple, Sam Renseiw fulfills his art-appreciation duties accordingly to the artist's wishes.
