Images of Canberra – Civic public art walking tour Episode 13, Commemoration

By johnboy 5 May 2006 5

On Saturday 08-APR-06 we did the Civic Public Art Walking Tour and lived to tell the tale.

And so, I present to you item # 13, Commemoration by Malcolm Munro. You can find it on London Circuit opposite Civic Square.

Commemoration - by Malcolm Munro

So what are we commemorating in this prime piece of real estate? Firefighters? Police? Victims of the Air Disaster?

The guide had this to say:

This sculpture is dedicated to the volunteers
and torch bearers who contributed to
the 2000 Olympic and Paralympic
games in Canberra.

Yep, four soccer games, grass painted green, and the participants of the torch relay with a fading sculpture that skirts the IOC’s copyright adroitly.

I’ve had a look at upcoming instalments and it seems the porno sheep are on the agenda.

That’ll be fun.

It won’t be there much longer – it’s going to Canberra Stadium.

I did like the Ghandi statue and that phallic Lithuanian thing.

Oh we have not yet begun to fight.

Is it just me or are most of the artworks featured in JB’s tour totally p*ssweak?
