PM shares the winner of the art proposal that camouflages the destruction of the beloved 7th Avenue Bridge. It’s made with timbers from the bridge and polished with lanolin. Apparently. I have no idea. I can’t see Perth public art without the meh.

    What the fuck?! Really? So they spun the first public art chocolate wheel and got “deconstruction”, a practice of which the artist (or copy writer at least) clearly has little understanding. Oh, throw in some cod surrealism too, if the image is anything to go by. This is a true worst. I’m going back to sleep now; hopefully this turns out to be naught but a bad dream.

    “[Main Roads] has engaged a public art co-ordinator to ensure the completed Seventh Avenue project recognises the heritage significance of the bridge.” All I can say is that they’re doing really fuckin’ well so far. “Almost “human vulnerability””: fuck off.

    The Barracks Arch of bridge preservation. Perth does this shit well.

    “abstract deconstruction of the original bridges structural aesthetic”, well, either that or Troy Buswell has been on the piss and behind the wheel again.

    Parts of it would work as a bike rack.

    I would like to read the rest of the “description”. So far it seems to be the usual bullshit similar to the pretentious garbage spewed forth by your typical socialist wanker when reading the label of a cheap bottle of SavBlanc whilst trying to impress the “lower classes”

    So, chuck in the 85K price tag attached to this and then see the true hideousness of it. I give it less than 12 months before one of the itinerants that hangs out under the bridge in summer tries to set it on fire.
