Fightback

Debbie S. Says that the totally effective sock treatment is being given to the unfortunate Beafort Street sculpture. Expect 5 more years of fence hire.

    Is there any explanation as to how the art is rising? Is it made of dough?

    The socks , as a “this stinks” protest on the Guildford hotel , may ( with emphasis on the may) have achieved the protesters’ aim.

    Bremick tendered on the work for $100k but now requesting more funds…..

    You will enjoy this from the artist;
    “The interlinking typography, held together when supported by the stage but slowly falling into collapse and disarray when not, is a metaphor in itself for the many varied ways in which a strong community supports each of its members…..
    Abstract colour and form within the platform’s tessellated surface will create the appearance of a Persian rug, the nature of which will provide a sense of familiarity……
    Steering away from primary colours and those often used by multinational fast food companies, the initial colour of the oversized lettering will be a contemporary champagne hue chosen for its bold but inoffensive hue reminiscent of the colours found in many of our native flora, modern graffiti art, traffic lights etc.
    Of course, the green of the rug, inspired by nature’s carpet, grass and low native groundcovers, will also therefore be compatible with the lettering and when set within the concrete and steel edge detail, this balance of industrial and nature-inspired colours will sit beautifully.”

      I thought it was a metaphor for the eagerness of city councils to waste money on crappy art projects which cause passers-by (and bloggers) to jeer and scoff.

      are the traffic lights on Beaufort Street a ‘contemporary champagne hue?’
      maybe at the Mount Lawley end.

      Isn’t this “news” a year old?

      Also, from the comments:

      “I’d rather have a local sculpture than Michelangelo’s statue of David. Which better reflects our community?”

      Persian rug? I’m not getting that vibe. At all.

      I just assumed these colours were chosen for their relative inability to show up vomit, piss and rust stains as well as the inevitable graffiti sand-blasting scuff marks.

      “The interlinking typography, held together when supported by the stage but slowly falling into collapse and disarray when abandoned by the side of the road, is a metaphor in itself for the many varied ways in which a strong community supports each of its members, or not.
      Abstract colour and form within the platform’s tessellated surface will create the appearance of a Persian rug, the nature of which will provide a sense of familiarity to those of us whose Persian rugs are made out of cement and leaned up against the wall.
      Steering away from primary colours and those often used by multinational fast food companies and the human body, the initial colour of the oversized lettering, before graffitit artists add their own vibrant palette, will be a contemporary champagne hue chosen for its bold but inoffensive hue reminiscent of the colours found in oh, hell, I don’t know, champagne, I guess.
      Of course, the green of the rug, inspired by nature’s carpet n’ drapes, grass and low native groundcovers, will also therefore be compatible with the lettering and when set within the concrete and steel edge detail, this balance of industrial and nature-inspired colours will vagina.”

          The culture of post-capitalist hegemony is strictly congruent with the construction of the image. The construction of praxis is virtually coextensive with the reification of the image. The systemization of normative value(s) recapitulates the reification of the gendered body. The eroticization of the gaze is virtually coextensive with the engendering of the gendered body.

      ok, firstly let me tell you haw many things are wrong with this statement….you’re obviously ignorent and don’t have all the facts about this project. Secondly that whole speal wasn’t said by the artist…where did you even find that????
      Thirdly…there is no apostrophe in ‘platforms’
      and finally, and I could be generalising here a bit….but you are a twat!
