Heated seats, warm water and automatic dispensing of toilet paper are no longer the most luxurious options for a luxury toilet. In the United States, a gold-plated toilet seat was set up in leather with 24 Louis Vuitton designer bags. You can buy it for 75 thousand pounds (6 million rubles).
To create the toilet artist from Los Angeles Ashley "Ilma Gore" (Illma Gore) took 24 bags and a suitcase worth 20 thousand dollars. It took her three months to work, the process brought the girl pleasure: “Personally, I like to feel that you cut a bag for $ 2,000. Thirst for destruction is almost the same as craving to create. ”
Ashley Gore's other recent work is a bust of Abraham Lincoln with Louis Vuitton logos and a rocket covered in Gucci print fabric.
All bags were bought at a thrift shop.
Now the toilet is on display in the Tradesy showroom in California under the sign of "No fake shit."
It may seem that the artist created a work of art like Marcel Duchamp's porcelain urinal “Fountain”, but this is a functioning model: it can be installed at home and used.
They have never used the object of luxury, although, according to the artist, "many have offered."
In 2016, before the US presidential elections, Ashley Gore drew a nude portrait of Donald Trump with a small penis, accompanied by an image with his campaign slogan "Let's make America great again." The picture became viral when the artist published it on her Facebook page and allowed to download high-resolution images for free to print.
Then Gore received thousands of reports of death threats and moved to the UK. She transferred the rights to sell the scandalous portrait to the Maddox gallery in London, and the painting was bought for a million pounds (80 million rubles).
