Description of Work
In 2009, Snowy River Arts collaborated with the local community, artists, local businesses, community groups and Council to realise four sculpture-seats for the Park Your Arts project. The seat, which can be found on the Lake Jindabyne foreshore, is designed to be used.
Everyone knows your tongue will freeze to a pole in winter;
but some people just have to try. This steel seat, which features a snowboard tongue and steel-ski mohawk, adds a little humour to the foreshore. The Snowy River Men's Shed was crucial to the installation of the project. The sculptural seat conveys the head of a "wintersports punk" with his snowboard shaped tongue (which is the part to sit on) enormously stretched, with the tip stuck frozen to a pole.
