The Worst of Perth won its first public art scalp this week, as the new Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi confirmed she will be having the infamous arse and boozie sculpture removed from the front of Perth railway station after seeing the piece featured on The Worst of Perth. Quoted in The West Australian’s Inside cover, Mrs Scaffidi confirmed that she would be taking action against the sculpture and said that after seeing the it on The Worst of Perth blog, her first thought was “How embarrassing…”
Mrs Scaffidi went on to say that the sculpture was originally meant to be moved to Gomboc Gallery in 2003, and that, she assumed that the gallery would have no objections to still taking it.

I’ll see if we can have The Convention centre removed next.
