A mysterious artwork appeared last Saturday in Piazza del Duomo, in Carrara. Installed in a circle of marble pebbles, like the official “Three Vases” sculpture by J Landi, which graces the city’s main square as part of Carrara Marble Weeks, 2014.
The toilet was placed, by hands unknown, at 3pm, Friday, and lasted 12 hours, before the Municipal Police removed the “provocazione.”
On a wooden stand was the title of the work: “Veni, Vidi, WC,” which is a play on words (in Italian the three words begin with a “V” sound). It’s roughly translated as “I came, I saw, I toilet.”
