The Auction was at Norwich Arts Centre in September 2017 with the accompanying details :

 

You are invited to bid for the breath of a celebrity of your choice.

You may bid for the breath of any living celebrity in any place in the world, and if your bid is the highest (above an undisclosed fixed reserve) then Nick Warburton will endeavour to obtain a breath of your chosen celebrity.

The winning bidder will receive copies of all correspondence associated with the obtaining of the celebrities breath; a photograph of their chosen celebrity blowing up the Platypus bottle; and the exhibited, hinged, framed, display case.

 

Terms and conditions :

Bids are only accepted by secret auction, and only bids submitted in person via the Norwich Arts Centre are valid.

50% of the winning bid will be given to a charity of the celebrities choice.

Bids are only accepted in British £ Sterling

Bids are binding – please do not bid if you do not wish to own the breath of a celebrity.

If the breath of the chosen celebrity cannot be obtained, then the winning bidder may choose to either accept the ‘artwork’ without the breath but with copies of all associated correspondence; or they may choose to decline the ‘artwork’ and negate payment of it.

If you would like to place a bid for the breath of a celebrity, then please speak to a member of the Norwich Arts Centre staff and you will be asked to complete a bidding form.
