Overthenet has always had a keen eye for ugly sculpture and now there is a chance for New Zealanders to see a good range at first hand. The opportunity is thanks to 111 sculptures from the 2008 Biejing Olympic Landscape Sculpture exhibition travelling to Gisborne and Wellington. In fact it is more like a competition, with the most popular 29 being supersized to around 20 metres high for permanent display after the Olympics. Talking about the exhibition to the Dominion Evening Post, Gisborne’s Mayor Meng Foon said, “Even Paris couldn’t get it.” Same.
