Re: Re: Look at de state of Cork, like!
Diaspora, I stand by my above comments 100%. To bring an appeal against a piece of public art because the appeallant has a different artistic vision than the artist or the benefactor is entirely frivalous.
I think you are jumping the gun here entirely, the multi-coloured fountain that was put onto O’Connell St was a piece of art that was inserted entirely into the wrong place, it lasted a few short years in a streetscape and was promptly dispatched to Herbert Park. A sculpture like a building has to be assessed under a number of criteria not least its compatibility with what is already insitu. If An Taisce Cork have concerns they are quite correct to raise these, ultimately ABP will rule on the matter and their decision will be final. Remember that Cork City Council planners have referred this to An Taisce for their opinion which has been given.
