Yesterday we went to Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam to see the exhibition Vorm-Fellows-Attitude by Gelitin (a group of four artists from Vienna, Austria. The group was formerly known as Gelatin and changed their name in 2005.) which was opened last weekend. We, at Mimi Berlin, had a really good time! First we got to pick out an outfit from the rack filled with abstract nude suits. You can imagine that we were already thrilled! The garments were actually quite nice, design-wise. All suited up we made some selfies, everybody did, and went into the main room. The large space is filled with 4 or so, giant turds (a lump of excrement) laid on Persian carpets. So, imagine people walking in these suits in between under and behind those brown sculptures (which were quite realistic, material-wise). We could not stop laughing, honestly, we had SO much fun!
At the end of the day all the suits were sprayed, not sure with what, maybe an odor killer or sanatising product.
Of course there is a deeper meaning behind all the poop-cock-and-tits fun. Read what Gelitin has to say about that below, or just go visit the Vorm-Fellows-Attitude show and find out for yourself, which is always the best thing to do, in our opinion.
