PISSOIRÉE

Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh

01/02/19 - 03/02/19

 

The toilet has important symbolic significance in the context of the history of modern art. Whilst the Mannekin Pis has been a Belgian scultptural icon since the early seventeenth century, toilets since the early 1900s, have become metonymic for Duchamps, ideas of the Readymade and Cologne’s Early Spring Dada Exhibition. That notions of the urinary have played a major role in facilitating artistic innovation is undisputed. However, the white cube environment, found in the majority of modern contemporary commercial galleries continually denies the existence of the base, and instead aims at high-minded and elitist ideals. ‘PISSOIRÉE’ satirises these pretensions and reclaims the gallery as the quintessentially accessible environment and a receptacle for the essentially human.

 

OTP presents a mixed-media group show including enlarged screen-prints that examine popular taboo, anthropomorphic paintings that examine animal display and an interactive instillation in the form of a festival urinal. 

Exhibiting artists include Will Atkinson, Tabby Carless Frost, Gabriela Grant, Jordbær Jorn, Hector MacDonald, Ben Maxwell, Jody Mulvey, Connor O'Sullivan.
