when site specific art goes wrong

link – from Newcastle Chronicle-Call to revamp £1.6m artwork left in disrepair

 

it seems that so often these big budget public art gig go wrong.

this seems to be one of them. A ‘carpet’ of blue tiles whose hue  did not last 8 years (this post is from 2011). And which broke and injured a passerby.  At £1.6 million in 90s money that is a lot of cash – and the taxpayers ahvenot ay thousands annulaly just to mantina it.

 

do we relay need ‘art’ like this?

 

no, not really. it’s just ego wank for the artist and the council
