Esta artista transformó bolsos de Louis Vuitton en un váter

Utilizó 24 bolsos.

Illma Gore ha estado trabajando durante tres meses en este proyecto para el que ha utilizado 24 bolsos de la firma Louis Vuitton, transformándolos en un váter de lujo que ha generado opiniones de todo tipo. Una obra valorada en casi 86.000 euros sumados de todas las obras adquiridas en la web de artículos de segunda mano Tradesy, convertidos en un inodoro exhibido en el showroom que dicha web tiene en Santa Mónica, California.

Would You Sit on a $100,000 Louis Vuitton Toilet? Would you sit on a toilet made of Louis Vuitton bags? If the thought has ever crossed your mind, then artist Illma Gore is about to make all your dreams come true. (To give you some idea of Gore’s oeuvre, she is the person responsible for this nude portrait of President Donald Trump.) She worked for three months and used 24 different bags valued at $15,000 total, including a $3,000 suitcase, to make the fully functioning potty. Each piece was sourced from designer resale site Tradesy and the toilet itself is currently on display at the Tradesy showroom in Santa Monica, California. And if you’re feeling like your current bathroom situation isn’t quite cutting it, then the wonderful accessory can now can be yours for $100,000. (In case you were wondering, the ultra luxurious toilet has never actually been used, though according to Gore, “many have offered.”) While the idea of a cheeky Louis Vuitton toilet may seem novel, there are actually many fashion objets d’art currently making the rounds. Back in September of 2016, Supreme released a $30 brick that was soon after listed at $1,000 on eBay. And just yesterday, Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director Kim Jones Instagrammed an image of a big Louis Vuitton x Supreme teddy bear on sale to benefit BBC Children in Need. ___________________________________________________ Via @voguemagazine @illmagore #LouisVuitton #Toilet #Brand #branding #logo #monogram #IllmaGore #avanope #supreme #Tradesy

Interesting artist @illmagore draped this toilet in 15 grand worth of Louis Vuitton bags. Well art is always subjective to interpretation, I do like the gold inside though btw I see this as an abstract creation because I don’t think it is to literally be used as a toliet which would be concrete, but more of a display piece a lot like the Tyler Shields type of work. Or it could reflect the large amounts of money we spend on material items which is like throwing money down the toilet….. #illmagore#art#abstract#louisvuitton#flyshitonly#toilet#losangeles#Australia#genderfluid#performanceartist#fashion#editorial#complexmagazine#gadgets#style#modernrenaissance#milliondollarlistingla#joshaltman#mauricioumansky#abstractart#tylershields#popartvibes#artbaselmiami#imitatemodern#highsnobiety#hsdailyfeature
