All the abuse about the Dong sculpture should be directed at the councillors in charge of approving this failed and costly project, not the artist.
The bureaucratic response from Councillor Ndiaye reflects a total lack of accountability in a council that has wasted the ratepayers’ money. Ideology rules without any regard for common sense or respect for ratepayers’ funds.
The plan to sell the sculpture parts again compounds the embarrassment this council has brought to the Byron community.
Whoever was ultimately responsible for this debacle should resign as it happens in the real world when we fail to deliver a minimum level of competence in our work. This should be followed by a public apology to the artist.
