Images of Canberra: The Link sculpture

Kerces 18 December 2006 6

Doing some Christmas shopping in civic, I noticed the Link sculpture has been completed only marginally after the rest of the development. I rather like it.

Looks like a giant door mat to me, but kind of pleasing on the eye in a odd sort of way.

Not a shade on the porno sheep or that strange mini Effiel Tower, but interesting enough, the kind of thing you expect to see in the gardens of the NGA.

it is still just crusher mesh. copper plated by the looks of it, but it isn’t in the the league of the infamous sheep. but having said that, i haven’t seen it in the flesh, so i’ll have to drag my arse out to check it out in situ. then i’ll be justified in flinging shit at it. maybe.

As monumental sculpture goes I think it looks great.

It’s not a patch on actually honouring real people, but as the brits proved recently in trafalgar square modern art can make a farce out of anything.

Having devoted the square over hundreds of years to people who had risked their lives in the service of the realm they gave the last plinth to Alison Lapper on account of her work in the arts overcoming her disability of being born with no arms.

Nevermind the bloke at the top of the plinth had won the Battle of Trafalgar (thus securing a century of naval supremacy and the birth of the modern world as we know it) while minus an arm and an eye.

Not having a go at Alison Lapper, just the need to make heros of victims when a real disabled person had never been a victim in his life.

My point is that this one is easy on the eye for which we should be grateful.

that is crusher screen mesh your looking at. and probably salvaged for nix. come in spinner. someone prove me wrong before i start putting in my own submissions for ‘art’.
but on the other hand, i’m sure it means something to somebody.

So what’s this piece of rubbish supposed to represent, apart from $20k of my taxes flushed down the drain?
