:Its absolutely great #news when #banksy shows some new work.
#street artist Banksy has installed a vandalized sculpture of a priest in a gallery in Liverpool writes bbc.co.uk and banksy said: “I’m never sure who deserves to be put on a pedestal or crushed under one.”
:nice conservation/ dialog published in their post, funny that every time d messages from this artist come in d right light, clean and evidently strong.
“I love everything about the Walker Gallery – the Old Masters, the contemporary art, the rude girl in the cafe. And when I found out Mr Walker built it with beer money it became my favorite gallery,” said Banksy.
“The statue? I guess you could call it a Christmas present. At this time of year it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity – the lies, the corruption, the abuse.”
:in d video for bbc from d gallery we listen that they decide to keep this work in their collection and open to be shown to everyone, confirming that besides this work they have some others that in “that” time were also provocative as this one 🙂
:Reyahn King, director of art galleries at National Museums Liverpool, said this about the piece:
“The sculpture very clearly contains a message. When you look at it and see the tiles that have been applied to the sawn-off face, you immediately get the impression of those pixelated images of suspected criminals you see on screen or in a newspaper photograph.”
As for Banksy? He remarked, “I guess you could call it a Christmas present. At this time of year it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Christianity – the lies, the corruption, the abuse.”
