artist statement

As an artist and citizen, as a partner and father, as a human being … I object to your ways you regulating priests of caution and conformity.

              Gary Deirmendjian, 2011

special notes

Superficially speaking the work takes its form and language directly from the actual warning signage developed and used extensively by Sculpture by the Sea. However to the artist it represents not only a site and event specific proposition, but more significantly a personal protest against what is quite simply a "sign of the times". How is one able to do anything anymore?

The work was undertaken specifically for the Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2011 Exhibition (Nov 3 - 20).
