About

Made from polyester, No.51 "Watercloset” was designed in 1995 by Joep van Lieshout. While at the Academy of Modern Art, which he graduated in 1985, Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout began making object of bright colored polyester, a material that would become his trademark. Watercloset was one of several bathroom and toilet units part of the Soft Edge collection from 1995 of Atelier van Lieshout. The exhibition accompanying the collection allowed the artist to enact a contractor, building a bathroom for the client-visitor. Made of polyester, what are usually functional objects had softened into waste, proving to be a blockage for the contractor-artist.
