‘Delay’ to 46m Liffey Leviathan was a tall storyhttp://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/ireland/article5581152.ece
Suggestions that the DDDA has scrapped plans for a giant wire man sculpture are nonsense, claims its creator Antony Gormley
Mary McCarthy, the authority’s arts manager, said that the DDDA’s statement was misunderstood.
“We said that we were reviewing the timeline of the project but it certainly hasn’t been scrapped. We have to decide whether it will be financed out of this year’s budget or next year’s but the money has been ring-fenced,” she said.
McCarthy said the project is only one month behind schedule. “We are hoping to go to market with tender documents in March and we would like to have a contractor by summer. We can then decide when to commence the build,” she said. http://www.ddda.ie/index.jsp?p=94&n=105&a=1106
However, given the current economic environment, the project will be kept under review and the Docklands Authority will continue working with the artist and others to progress the design at this stage.
easy mistake to make
never heard the reaction of the locals to it being given permission.
