On my first visit to the 2018 International Sculpture Biennial exhibition A Grin Without a Cat at the Borås Art Museum, I somehow managed to miss this huge … thing … on display outside:
Be honest: When seeing this, would your first thought be: “What a great piece of art!” ??
Now tell me what you think:
Is this Art? Rubbish? History worth preserving? Comparable to a piece of the Berlin Wall?
(What they intend to do with it after the art exhibition is over, I don’t know.)
Postcard from John in England, June 2018
“There was the Cat again, sitting on the branch of a tree.”
The gilded roundel of the Cheshire Cat featured on the back cover of the original edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published by Macmillan & Co Ltd in 1865.
