Baby Aint Got Back

So ladies, if the butt is round,
And you want a triple X throw down,
Dial 1-900-MIXALOT
And kick them nasty thoughts
Baby got back!

Sir Mixalot. Baby got back.

Kudos to the City of Wanneroo for putting some money into public art, but guys, if you put a sculpture in the centre of a roundabout, there’s a reasonable chance that some people are going to see the back of the bloody thing.

    Maybe the other half of this one is in a round about in some other unfortunate suburb of Perth….2 for the price of one perhaps? If we found the 2 halves it would make a pretty impressive chocolate mould.

    It’s being purchased on the buy half now and buy half later plan.
    How long is it going to be before someone draws a scary ghost face on the back side *wanders off to find pen*

    It’s art. How can we be sure which is the back?

    Hey, Frank is missing – paging Mr Frank Calabrese
    Where’s he gone, surely not tired of us already?

    There appear to be nipples on the ‘back’.

    I think this is a deliberate ploy by the City of Wanneroo. Tourists will flock from distant lands to see the ‘Backless/Double-Fronted Lady of the North-East’.

    I’m here :-)

    It looks like a Religious statue gone wrong, quite fitting considering the wogification of the City of Wanneroo :-)

    Mez,
    I think that most of the guys here have a bit of a problem with pretentiousness.*
    A double whammie here with both the council and the artist presenting opportunities for derision.

    * A certain Mr Hoey a notable exception.

    I do wonder sometimes what the artists think about their work being held up for public dissection. I guess they can’t complain after agreeing to present the work and presumably being paid for it. Personally I’ve had a lot of fun reading all comments about art on this site. The contributions often reveal more about the writer than the artist. Perhaps confirming the role of the artist holding a mirror up to society.

  15. They love it. Artist egos are too huge to be affected by amateur critics.

    From what I can see it represents someone who is all presentation, image and spin. But behind them, is nothing at all… just hollow and no real substance.
