Another temporary art thing appeared at Taylor Square recently.
I love that this terrific beast is arising from the dingy downstairs toilet at Taylor Square. A real underworld.
These weird geometric objects appeared behind a fence on Taylor Square last night.
I walked by on Friday morning, as council workers tore plants out of their planters and pots, and tossed them into the back of their trucks.
They plant those flowers, take them out, plant them, erect new planters, take them away, without any real connection to what’s going on with the plants – they seem pretty healthy. Still, those planters have been strange from the moment they appeared.
I walked past later, at about midnight, and a fence had been erected around the Taylor Square public toilet. I peeked over the top, and this is what I saw.
I’m pretty sure it’s Dale Miles’s Underworld (the latest in the Taylor Square Plinth project – we blogged about Louisa Dawson’s work in October). He’s shown widely since graduating from the National Art School several years ago – see more here.
He says it’s a response:
to the mysteriousness of the shape of the space enclosed by the entrance fence and the two descending staircases. It is the mystery of the void inverted, the spider exiting its funnel.
The original idea is this. More pictures to come.
