Vandals #2 and #3 are part of a series of temporary public sculptures by the London artist and architect Julika Gittner. Chained to lampposts, the objects are exposed to an urban condition over a period of 10 days. Whilst the sculptures act as provocateurs as well as receptacles of aggression and vandalism they are also vulnerable pieces of artwork. Outside of the protective space of the museum their fragile constructions become sensors for how the public treats culture beyond the grip of the bourgeois white gloves. The process of exposing the objects on the street is documented in photographs. The sculptures were presented at DAZ.
