Following the voyages of ‘Trump Baby’ and ‘Trump Chicken’, it seems like the US President has taken root in Australia.
In Sydney’s Luna Park, a giant sculpture of Trump’s head “arises” from the ground. Titled Monument #32: Helter Skelter, the installation for art fair Sydney Contemporary was created by Melbourne-based artist Callum Morton, and features the unmistakable facial features of Trump with an empty ‘noggin’.
The sculpture’s hollowed-out head is spacious enough to fit in a bench, allowing passersby to step inside Trump’s brain and pick at it.
According to Sydney Contemporary, the installation “play[s] a role in our everyday lives,” much like the actual president does.
Check out the sculpture below. Would you like to get in the US President’s head?
CALLUM MORTON | ‘Monument #32: Helter Shelter’ is a piece of temporary minor architecture, akin in scale to a bus shelter or a parade float. Half of the shelter bears the unmistakable characteristics of Donald Trump rising out of the ground and the other half forms a space for seating and cover from the weather. This voiceless, hollowed out, fun fair head, that reminds one of the famous Luna Park entrance across the harbour, conscripts the image of the current American President to play a role in our everyday lives by providing a place to rest and be protected. This work by @callummortonstudio (represented by @roslynoxley9 ) can be seen at @barangaroosydney until 24th September. - Artwork credits: Callum Morton, ‘Monument #32: Helter Shelter’, installation view, images courtesy of the artist and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery - #sydneycontemporary #barangaroo #callummorton #roslynoxley9 #donaldtrump
