Angel of the South, Ebbsfleet Landmark
Just how low profile is this project? Interesting how difficult it seems to be to get people to judge the five ideas from the Artists (flavoured with a Turner Prize or two so you know where we are coming from).
A interesting paragraph from here yesterday sums it all up nicely, and I quote:
Controversy has surrounded the competition after campaigners, including Kent President of Campaign to Protect Rural England, Graham Clarke, claimed the designs have been forced on the county's residents. Despite an exhibition at Bluewater giving residents a chance to vote for their favourite design, many complained that there was not enough choice.
Looking at those designs one might be forgiven for thinking about “a wing and a prayer”, but not the sort that Angels have!
So what do you think?
