golden roach

05Jul11

Golden Roach is an ongoing guerrilla art movement initiated by Hungarian artist Kissmiklos. The artist sneaks bronze cockroaches into museums and arranges them as part of the current exhibition. Museums that have had these guerrilla installations include the Tate Britain, Tate Modern, and British Museum, among others. Comparing himself to a cockroach in the “sanctuary of visual arts,” Kissmiklos even included labels for the roaches. You can read one in the second image here. However serious the commentary embedded in this project about the museum system, I think the execution of the project seems generally fun – watching the video on the golden roach website furthers this impression. It would be a joy to come across these golden roaches in a popular museum.  via.
