Melbourne, Sept 29 (ANI): In a controversial work of art, a student artist has put on display her own brightly coloured excrement at a Moorabbin gallery.

Student artist Georgie Mattingley's work 'Life is Delicious' will go on display at the Kingston Arts Centre next month.

The exhibition's centrepiece is a series of resin spheres containing Mattingley's faeces, along with flowers, leaves and crystals.

Mattingley said she became fascinated with altering the colour of her excrement when she was 13, and the exhibition was an exploration of the "beauty in the mundane process of eating and consuming in our everyday lives".

"I've done everything I can to turn something so vulgar and repulsive into something so beautiful and spiritual," quoted her as saying.

"She is, I think, trying to reclaim the idea that bodily processes are not something to be ashamed of," said RMIT associate professor Linda Williams. (ANI)
