Worst Public Art/Sculpture
We continue Cimbali’s walking tour of Kalamunda’s public art atrocities. Moving on from the turd in the pond, exit Stirk Park at the top gate where Kalamunda road terminates.
Next comes the Piddling Honkies. While I have become very fond of these, some members of the community were apoplectic with rage at their introduction. A young friend told me that on completing her TEE she was going to dance naked under them but given that they are only a couple of feet off the ground nude squatting is really the only likely outcome – and no one wants that!
More to come! The Library “White Thing.”
Update. Piddling Honkies was produced by The Smiths, a couple who have produced a lot of public sculpture in Perth. If you know Perth you will know the giant Kangaroos near Council House, as well as several others. Their stuff could be worse, but like piddlig honkies most of it falls into the category of excellent technique with very poor ideas. They are currently working on something that does seem to fir in well with The Worst of Perth ethos. A very very ugly clock next to the belltower. Why guys why? I will cover it when it’s up, but here are some apalling preliminary views.
