A Complex Pile

Let me preface by saying this might just be my favorite story of the month (if not the year).

What can only be described as a giant inflatable pile of dog excrement created by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from it’s anchor in the garden/field behind the Paul Klee Museum in Bern, taking down a powerline and taking out a greenhouse before coming to rest.

Apparently the safety system on the piece (appropriately entitled Complex S*¡t) which would theoretically deflate the house-sized sculpture, failed to kick in on the evening the pile blew away.

Score one for fine art.
