Fart Gallery

A Collection of Famous Farts!

Two or three small glass jars would be mailed to various celebrities to collect their best farts in. One of the jars would be put on display in the gallery, while the others would be used to synthesize the smell. While walking through the gallery, vistors could push a button that would blow a small sample of the "artificial" fart at them to smell.

The true beauty of this project is the visceral realization that while, for example, Madonna, is immensely wealthy and famous, her falafel farts are just as nasty as our own!

The only way I could see this actually working is as a fund raising project for charity. I would imagine the asking price of a "Genuine Prince Charles Burrito Fart" would be far too high to make this economically viable.

       Of course to prevent fraud you would have to have these farts collected and certified under strict conditions.

       Another idea that sounds straight out of a Farrelly Brothers screenplay!

       I can see fart classes springing up across the country. Farting the nude, Landscape fart, Conceptual fart. "yes, the execution is very abstract-expressionist but overall, and especially later in his career i find his fart to be rather over stated."

       Fart connoisseurs could identify what the stars had eaten in the 8 hours previous to the sample. A la Pauley Shore's "Bio Dome" classic fart guessing scene. Perhaps certain gastrointestinal maladies could be diagnosed this way.

       I'm reminded of the 60s Italian artist who canned his own ordure and sold it for exorbitant prices on the art market. I think this is an idea that actually could make a lot of money if done right - if you can't find celebrated people to make a contribution, you could sell jars that contained farts 'inspired' by Madonna, Barbra Streisand et al.

       perhaps, once the stars' fart has been analysed and then synthesised, it could be incorporated into scratch and sniff souvenir post-cards in the gallery foyer.
