Art is everywhere, even in the public toilets!

The interactive installation appropriately titled “Toilet Project”, invites visitors to use the sculptures to wash their hands. eventually softening and erasing the details and features of the statuettes. Shin’s soap creations will be in place until October at galleries including Birmingham’s IKON Gallery, The Scottish National Museum of Modern Art and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park ”
