The Why?s Man

"My art is place specific and people specific." George Wyllie

Back to Poetry


Erst Nature's profit comes to harm

it's safe within the Battery Farm.

The same delusion to the heart

is the Gallery that encloves Art

George Wyllie thought that galleries were a Victorian concept. His argument was that art should be displayed outside of a gallery, and that... 'public art was art which the public could not ignore'.

Art outside the Gallery

Voyaging beyond the bathtub
