A new exhibition is set to launch in Hull, which will see one of the most mundane, unexpected, day-to-day objects turned into art – the urinal.

Bathroom manufacturer Ideal Standard has worked with various designers, artists, poets and writers, alongside the Hull School of Art and Design, to turn the humble urinal into 45 unique installations.

The Fountain17 project has been inspired by late artist Marcel Duchamp’s 1917 coveted masterpiece, which was simply a porcelain urinal signed “R. Mutt”. Interpretations in the exhibition use mediums such as sculpture, painting, performance and film.

Contributing artists include Assemble, poet Lemn Sissay, and designer Ben Kelly. Read more at Design Week http://ow.ly/vQnd30avVaB
