Cloaca Professional (2010, mixed media)

Sometimes it takes a shit machine to open your eyes to art. You can’t not ask why?, and that’s when your mind explodes.

in the artist’s words: 
"I always wanted to do a shit machine…you know I saw the film Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a little boy.

"I am surprised Walsh [at MONA] is still feeding the machine…he may one day get tired of it.”

Bruce Munro

British artist Bruce Munro is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. Recording ideas and images in sketchbooks has been his practice for over 30 years. By this means he has captured his responses to stimuli such as music, literature, science, and the world around him for reference, reflection, and subject matter. This tendency has been combined with a liking for components and an inventive urge for reuse, coupled with career training in manufacture of light. As a result Munro produces both monumental temporary experiential artworks as well as intimate story-pieces.

His work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, the Biennale Kijkduin in Den Hague, the Eden Project in Cornwall, Pratt Institute, New York, the Guggenheim Museum, New York and Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire. In the United States he has found that botanical gardens provide the scale his outdoor pieces require and he has had solo exhibitions at Longwood Gardens, Cheekwood Museum and Gardens, and Franklin Park Conservatory.
