Pylons 'Sculpture' Wins

Michael Visocchi - Winning Design: YieldThe 2009 Jerwood Sculpture Prize has been won by Michael Visocchi with this design of scaled-down electricity pylons: Yield. Surely we already have too many of these monstrosities scarring the British landscape without adding another one as "art" at a cost of £25,000. At 18 metre-thingies tall, it will inflict its baleful influence upon Jerwood Sculpture Park in the grounds of Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, from Spring 2010. Groan! Such a waste of money, especially during a recession! "Let them eat cake" indeed!
