Beaufort Street Art

I went to the unveiling of the new sculpture on the corner of The Arrondissement and Vincent. Actually it’s not so bad. The corner is probably better with it than without it. It seems a little unstable  though. Some drunk or crackpot stumbling out of the sex shop or vegan restaurant could just stamp it down. Alannah did a fair job of unveiling. Michael Sutherland was there too and I have to say I was soooo grateful when he was the first to ask where the drinks were. The dude knows his electorate. BTW I am sure that the donger on the dog was the same one drawn on Sutherland’s face.I was first in line for free piss.beaufort

    I reckon it will be a hit with the drunks from the Scotsman, who will want to ride on the crossbar and have their picture taken

    Also note that the average life span for road signs on that corner is six months, so it will get flattened soon enough

    As the kerb crawlers come done the Arondissement to turn into Stirling St they will be inspired by this tribute to Eros. No doubt , they will have a bike on the back of their vehicle. It will be enough to make them forget about chasing frisbees. Thank you Lannie.

    I went past it yesterday and noticed that The Bunny with the Boobies had been adorned with a shopping bag from the Baker and Schuhandler store, so they have clearly co-opted the sculpture as their own promotional vehicle.

    although nobody that goes into that store is remotely interested in boobs (not that there’s anything wrong with that)

    big front page spread in the Guardian Express yesterday.

    apparently the sculpure is a big hit. A vox pop with the locals suggest this is because:

    a. everyone likes anything with a dog in it
    b. you can dress it up like that other statue
    c. it’s non-stop free advertising for the shop behind it
    d. it’s a political statement protesting the absurdity of compulsory bike helmets
    e. someone pejazzled the dog’s dick

    As the giant head is already on the coast, could it possibly be shipped to Yanchep (formerly) Sun City to replace or augment the old limestone sculptures? Alternatively can it be moved to the Mt Lawley Train Station to eat the really rubbish platform art that’s there? After it’s performed that task I nominate it as a venue for a new small bar.
