The Other Side of Midnight comes to City Walk. New public art

By johnboy - 4 December 2012 33

the other side of midnight

Joy Burch has unveiled the above new sculpture by Anne Ross on City Walk.

And when I say unveiled, well this is what it looked like last night:

wrapping

climbing

We can only imagine the effect it will have on wide eyed clubbers traipsing down City Walk at 4am.

Seems to be lacking the anti-grinding measures that other pedestals, retaining walls, etc., have installed. Would it be that they distract from the aesthetic of the piece?

The art is indeeed creepy.

The misspelling of ‘Burch’ is officially piss funny, though.

I know who Joy Burch is but it’s spelled “Birch” on the bronze plaque. Try to keep up…

Oh well spotted.

I’ve asked her office what they’re doing about that.

Burching people presumably….tee hee tee.

There’s a lot to be said for feral fantasy in the arts. It’s a fairy tale nightmare. Notice the horns growing from the little girl’s head. Are they wishing bones from an unseen chicken? Or tuning forks for unheard merry-go-round music?

I quite like it, from the photograph.

Reindeers horns on the girls head perhaps but what sort of a message do the impaled dogs send the kiddies?

Looks decent.. What happens during the multicultural festival? Doesn’t seem all that useful to have that landscaping there.
I also dont get why we can’t have more attractive buildings. Most of them are just boring.

I think it’s inappropriate for the middle of civic. If it was near the ANU I would think it was cool.

Be cheaper for us if she changed her name by deed poll 🙂

Me too.

I like this one! 🙂

Art snobs may sneer, but something that isnt abstract attracts much more attention – and provides much more immediate enjoyment – than a random shape. Plus colour!

I anticipate this will be a children’s favourite. Which is no bad thing
