The Italian Job at the De La Warr Pavilion

This art work named “Hang on a minute lads, I’ve got a great idea” by sculptor Richard Wilson was installed on the De La Warr Pavilion as part of the Cultural Olympiad. This article in the Guardian explains the idea behind it.

The work was designed  to add something eyecatching and ‘British’ to the Olympic Torch procession that went through Bexhill. I don’t think it looks as good as the concept photograph that can be seen here, as the exposed girder detracts from the illusion somewhat. However I do like the way it teeters in the wind, and its good that a renown artist has displayed his work in this part of the world.
