The Glue Society has unveiled its latest installation at the Sculpture by the Sea festival in Aarhus in Denmark. The piece, entitled “It wasn’t meant to end like this”, is a huge mechanical digger that seems to have buried itself under 300 tonnes of rubble…
As the Glue Society’s James Dive says, “[the work] has a subdued, still quality, despite its physical size.” It certainly gives the impression that this 25 tonne digger is attemtping to hide itself away.
“It wasn’t meant to end like this” follows previous artistic explorations via a sculpture of a miniature man defecating on a ten foot pigeon (shown in New York) and their infamous God’s Eye View project, which attracted hundreds of comments on the CR blog.
Sculpture by the Sea, the Australian sculpture festival, has recently added Aarhus to its roster of visiting cities. Other work by the Glue Society collective can be viewed at gluesociety.com.
