Toilets (Unprojected Habits)
Storefront for Art and Architecture. New York 1992
PAGE: 1 2 3

 

With a budget of $500 five portable construction toilets were rented and inserted into the façade of the Store Front for Art & Architecture in New York, left open to the public and serviced for 6 weeks.
At the time of the work these toilets were the only free public facilities in the city.
The great potential of the Storefront was to engage the public; to remind us that architecture serves. The installation's bold and incisive inversion of public and privileged space resonated at many levels: viewer and displayed, wealth and poverty, interior and exterior, object and container. Neither could maintain an unknowing relation to the other. Distance and position were deeply confounded.
