Death of the Civic
Photography. C-Type prints mounted on aluminium
The removal, destruction and theft of public sculptures I have always found strange, there is this tension between the perceived value of a work of art, and its actual value. These photographs are of a number of sites where public sculptures once were. I took these pictures over a 10 year period, which is also a time that saw an incredible acceleration of the privatisation of public housing, land and resources. I am not sure if I think it’s good or bad that these works are no longer in public in all honesty, but it felt like something worth documenting.Date2008 – 2018
