It sounds a bit drastic to accuse an art gallery of kidnapping a toilet but that’s exactly what happened!

Not only did they kidnap my precious portable loo but they then held her hostage for about a week not granting me permission to go in and check she was ok 😦

Put yourself in my shoes – imagine you had been privileged enough to go to Portable Toilet Land, and pick out your own very special looking portable toilet from all the ones they had lined up in need of some TLC and a home, then you spent 100 hours inside the thing, cleaning it and doing it up, putting up with the fact that you smelt like poo and bleach for about two weeks, six months later having people still refuse to shake your hand on the basis they know where it’s been, travelling half way around the world photographing toilet signs, getting laughed at by lots of people when photographing the mens’ door and a man walks out in the middle of the picture being taken, only to go and check your precious portable toilet was ok where it was being safely stored only to find that it was gone and hear that an anonymous white van had been and removed it without a trace earlier in the day!!!

Enough of the rant, she was found safe and sound…

…if only the Tate had the same mentality!

So basically what i am trying to say is – Bog Standard Gallery is now on exhibition in Urbis for those that want to pay a visit!

It’s on the 3rd floor and forms part of the ‘Catapult‘ exhibition – entrance is free – you don’t need to spend a penny to go in! 😛

For those that don’t live near Urbis you can also pay Bog Standard Gallery a visit on Second Life!
