The Hidden

Illusiver noted this public art hidden behind Melville Council. If I recall the piece was part of Fremantle Sculpture by The Sea, an altogether more positively scaled event compared to the rather lopsided Cottesloe. But why is this hidden? Or has it become the exclusive privilege of some Melville Council Czar? Like a stolen Kandinsky, to be gazed at over the rim of a glass of sipped 24 year old Chivas. Is its real value residing in its inadmissibility to the common scum of Melville? Well I hope so. Or is there just nowhere else to put it?mel1mel2

    I’d hide that monstrosity out the back, if someone gifted it to me, too!
    You just gotta wonder at the gall of some “artists”. “Con-artists” is a better description.
    “Lets whack together some poly road barriers and tack a few crappy glitzy decorative bits on them, and charge them 85 grand! Woo-hoo!! What a way to cream it in!!”
    I guess there’s at least one small saving grace. The council staff can utilise it for seating during lunch break.

    Whist I admire the sentiment – which, I suspect, actually refers to ‘god botherers’ – I can only emphasise that there are many of us who are scared of things which don’t actually exist.

    I wish I’d have known about this little diamond in the rough. I’d have purloined it myself to hang in the smoking room next to the Mona Lisa. What, you don’t kno the one in the museum is the fake? Surely you jest!

    Me too. Perfectly normal reaction. If you’re scared now just fucking wait til he comes back with the Mahdi. Like having Nic Nat and Sandi on the same team. Fucking scary stuff.

      My first thought was… Fair call…

      Same thing I think about Priests, Politicians,Teachers I have known, Sports Coaches, Scout Masters and Unidentified Internet chat room users asking me if I am 12 and if I can send them a photo of my boobies…
