When good art turns bad

Regular readers will be shocked to hear this recent news from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne

“Complex Shit, a sculpture by the American artist Paul McCarthy, cast loose its moorings and was lifted by a sudden gust of wind from the Paul Klee centre in Berne and carried 200 yards to eventually make landfall in the grounds of a children’s home.
Museum authorities said the work had an automatic safety device that was supposed to make it deflate in the event of a storm - but it failed to operate."
