Artist Meekyoung Shin, who lives and works in Seoul and London, has created a series of Eastern and Western classical statues made from soap to beautify bathrooms and promote good personal hygiene. These busts are currently located in the bathrooms of sixteen museums and galleries across the UK.

Shin’s ‘Toilet Project’ sculptures are installed in an unusual area in the buildings and people who visit the bathrooms are encouraged to use the statues when they wash their hands. Design Week reports that the soap statues are installed at locations including Birmingham’s IKON Gallery, The Scottish National Museum of Modern Art and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park until October.

After this, they should have a ‘weathered’ affect, and they will then be brought together for the Translation Museum exhibition at the Korean Cultural Centre in London in November. Click through to see images of the ‘Toilet Project’ sculptures:
