Arty Privy is an exhibition of the 30th Anniversary Designer Toilet Series showing at the Hong Kong Arts Centre. Ideas about Arts Centre, art, and toilets are developed and realized; visual coordinates are turned up-side-down and spaces are re-distributed, challenging visitors’ preconception and flexibility of day-to-day routines – the art of the privy.

Japanese artist Yamamoto Motoi creates these mind blowing patterns out of poured salt. Motoi started these installations when his younger sister died from brain cancer, which led him to memorialise her in his labyrinthine’s. After hundreds of hours of pouring and once each piece has been exhibited for several weeks, he invites the public to destroy each work and help pack the salt into bags and jars to then be thrown back into the ocean. Truly heartfelt work.
A new installation will be created at the Laband Art Gallery in Los Angeles. Dates for viewing the work in progress are August 29, 30, 31 and September 4, 5, 6. It will finally be completed and open on September 8.
We love the Odd Nightmare installation created by Brooklyn-based French artist, Julien Gardair, at Playtime New York. The dark, yet playful black and white trend space wasn’t scary at all!

We love the ghostly works by Japanese artist Akiko Ikeuchi. Room size installations in Japan, Korea and New York are carefully made up of delicate silk threads. This weightless architecture may appear chaotic but Ikeuchi plans each installation as an architect would plan a building using blueprints that involve a complex internal framework. Amazing!
