Wim Delvoye | Cloaca Toilet Paper

Wim Delvoye
Cloaca Toilet Paper 
New York City, USA: The New Museum, 2002
10.5 x 10.5 x 11.5 cm
Edition size unknown

Published in conjunction with the Belgian artist's first North American museum exhibition, Wim Delvoye: Cloaca, at the New Museum, this roll of toilet paper is adorned with the Cloaca logo – a cross between the Ford Logo and the Mr Clean Man (with his intestines showing).

Cloaca is a room-sized installation, a machine that - thru a series of chemical beakers, electrical pumps, cylinders and plastic tubes - mimics the human digestive system. You feed it, and it shits.
