Images of Canberra – Civic public art walking tour Episode 34, Woman In Thought

By johnboy 31 May 2006 6

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 # 34, Woman In Thought, by Milan Vojsk. Its next to the Reserve Bank building on London Circuit.

Woman In Thought - by Milan Vojsk

The guide says:

The Reserve Bank approached Milan Vojsk
in 1963 requesting sketches for a sculpture
to enrich the area adjacent to their new
branch. Vojsk visited the site to get a fi rst
hand impression of the architectural style
and surroundings of the city and produced
a number of drawings and studies.
The 2.9 metre bronze casting of Woman
in Thought was executed in Milan and
installed in 1973 as a gift to the people
of Canberra.

This was one of the highlights of the tour for me.

It is a symbol of the unfair female stereotypes personified by the media and directed at impressionable youth to reenforce unacheivable ideals of perfection…. no wait – what Ari said.

Nah, it’s just severe anorexia.

Although, looking more closely at the fingers and toes, not to mention her neck, the ‘stretch’ period may be more appropriate…

Ari 12:12 pm 31 May 06

He he

We’re in perfect agreement, then.

terubo 12:10 pm 31 May 06

I’m struggling to put a name to that period.
-The ‘perfect’ period?

Ari 11:24 am 31 May 06

I reckon it’s a perfect example of a particular period in sculpture.

And it fits in perfectly with the buildings around it which are from the same period.
