Weekly Inspiration : in your face

Canadian artist and novelist Douglas Coupland needs your gum.

As part of his "everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything” exhibition Coupland is inviting the public to stick their chewing gum to a large sculpture of his head, a piece he has titled "Gumhead".

I’m a huge Coupland fan, his approach to writing, art, culture is fresh and full of irreverence, an ingredient Coupland embraces when interviewed in Thandi Fletcher’s piece in Metro : http://metronews.ca/news/vancouver/1118090/qa-douglas-coupland-dishes-on-gooey-gumhead-statue/

"It’s so ugly-beautiful, isn’t it? A total success."
