World's Most Expensive Garbage Can



SYLVIE FLEURY
Garbage Can, 2003
24-karat gold leaf on steel. 14 x 12 x 9 3/4 in. (35.6 x 30.5 x 24.8 cm). Stamped with intials and date "SF 2003" and numbered of 25 on the underside. This work is from an edition of 25.

Looking for the most extreme things! Look no further. The world's most expensive garbage can will go on sale with an estimate of $10,000 to $15,000. Made with 24-karat gold leaf on steel, this is truly a decadent piece of garbage. But we admire Silvie Fleury for her dare as she will certainly touch a nerve or two with this controversioal work. Garbage by Silvie Fleury will be available during the Contemporary Art Sale at Phillips de Pury & Company in New York on May 15th 2009.
