(Scroll down for video) Artists from around the world displayed their art outside a museum in Hong kong, while one U.S. artist displayed a pile of poop.

The art projects were all made of inflatable material. The 51-foot-tall inflatable poop display was one of many strange public art pieces on display at the site of the future Hong Kong visual art museum.

The large brown sculpture was created by Los Angeles artist, Paul McCarthy, and he calls the display “Complex Pile”.

“Somehow, when it comes to art, anything goes, no matter how disturbing or sexually explicit it may be. If it is in the name of art it is accepted,” Linda Davis, 22, an art student in San Diego, California told when asked about the inflatable poop art.

Unfortunately, the poop made a mess after it was damaged by mother nature’s rain storm. The international inflatable art exhibit also featured a big cockroach, a pair of legs, a bouncy Stonehenge castle, and a giant suckling pig.

A pile of poop is usually something people try to avoid, but in Hong Kong, the inflatable art installation is attracting lots of attention.

The museum’s executive director said he isn’t sure what the artist was trying to achieve with the large brown sculpture, but it sure got a lot of people talking.
