The Art of Fly Tipping


Criminally underrated, Fly Tipping displays all that is best in contemporary sculpture. A relaxed an un-premeditated arrangement of forms that rivals early Bruce Mclean or Anthony Caro, Fly Tips are the ultimate in public art. At ease in both rural and urban landscapes these seemingly effortless compositions stand out in any location. Fly Tips have not always met with a warm reception; described as hideous and ugly by some nevertheless a small but committed number of aficionados are beginning to appreciate their latent beauty and seek to have the best works preserved. A short Fly Tip video is here .

Ah see we were all just waiting for Sam to take the initiative. I'm a bit off blogs and blogging at the moment. The fly tips in your video look slightly sad, abandoned, and at the risk of further anthropomorphising, the music becomes a kind of sparse melancholia which accentuates their lonesomeness. So fly tips are clearly unloved. Not that I can say I've ever been a fan of them myself, just stumbling into other peoples' crap really.

"Sad" and "abandonned" ........no these are works of art!

abandoned art?

All art is abandonned by its makers to the whims of posterity

ha!
just received a fabulous heap of fly tipping art in front of our buliding, during the week-end.
(seems someone is renovating, and forgot to order a container)

will post a video of it this week.
apparently, you certainly keep ahead of global art devellopments. the idea seem to spread fast.
(or: is the world getting messier?)
