homage (of a kind)

You would expect, wouldn’t you, that a tag in an Art School toilet would reflect the high ambient standards of  aesthetic consideration. And so, when artists like Cy Twombly command god-like respect amongst art students, it’s inevitable some of the material qualities of his art were bound to spill over. As sometimes happens in such contexts.

No so in Russia, according to Robert Bonnett

And so the 2011 challenge will be: The Iconophilia R. Mutt Award for toilet tags with art historical references.

“if you ever wanted to commit suicide..just call me”… Would you like the photo of this one? A found-object in the girls toilet!

Only if it has an art-historical reference! Otherwise I’ll be overwhelmed by girl-toilet discourse, which will not be good…
