Today i got to join a very exclusive club. My urinal is now a part of the tate's permanent collection for all to view in the mens toilets in the turbine hall.
Marcel Duchamp 1887 - 1968
Fountain is a 1917 work often attributed to Marcel Duchamp. However recentley it has been discovered that a person by the name of R.MUTT actually created the orginal Fountain that has long been credited to Duchapmp. Back in 1916 Marcel Duchamp had a day job selling Urinals door to door. Records show that Duchamp was not having much luck selling his urinals when he befriended R.MUTT who was an artist that Duchamp met in his childhood. Duchamp sold Mutt a urnal. However R.MUTT told Duchamp of his intentions. Mutt suspected that Duchamp might steal his idea out of jealousy so he created many replicas. When Fountain originaly went on show Duchamp out of anger smashed R.MUTTS urinal and had him killed off with no trace so he could later claim the artwork was his. The Urinal you see before you is the original Urinal created by created by Duchamp. It is a poor imitation of the original created by Mutt.

Just had a check. The plaque is still up on the wall, my sculpture will be there forever. The plaque was stuck to the wall with about £10 worth of super glue. So i imagine they will have a hard time getting it off the wall
I did not make any mistakes. the artwork is the sculpture and not the Packard on display next to it
Packard was an American luxury-type automobile marque built by the Packard Motor Car Company of Detroit, Michigan, and later by the Studebaker-Packard Corporation of South Bend, Indiana. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899 and the last in 1958.
