Object000 and DNT, Stokes Croft, Bristol, March 2017

757. Stokes Croft, the Carriageworks (24)

You can always rely on ObjectØØØ to be very present when there is some political action going on. At the start of March he and DNT took over several of the arches at the Carriageworks and posted a huge and rather crude protest banner piece for a march in London, protesting against cuts in the National Health Service (NHS).

The highlight had to be the central picture of Theresa May kissing Donald Trump, obviously referencing their little ‘love in’ when May visited Trump shortly after his electoral triumph, also referencing the potential privatisation plans that the Tories have with American health insurance companies, also referencing this unforgettable image of Trump kissing Boris Johnson by the Paintsmiths prior to the Brexit vote. Who’d have thought we would be in this dreadful state right here right now. Grief.

While technically not as strong as the Paintsmiths piece, the image still has impact. Power to the people!

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my profile...to this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.
