Janet Curley Cannon
New Dead End Street, - 2011
Constructed for a specific site as part of a sculpture trail, the work is a semi-derelict wall, an urban ruin, but was placed within an expanse of green in a beautiful garden setting of a country home. It is intended to play with the viewer as a type of 'folly' with a great deal of trompe l'oeil irony. The title and text used on the wall is a reference to the Kinks song 'Dead End Street' and refers to the state of the squeezed middle classes in today's society.
