‘Framed artwork’: A cover has been placed over the hole in Nagore Road, George Town, to prevent accidents but the frame has been left untouched.
GEORGE TOWN: The hole in Nagore Road – which became the subject matter for Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic’s “framed artwork” – has been covered up, but the frame is staying in place.
Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, in a press conference yesterday, said a cover had been placed over the hole to prevent accidents while the frame had been left untouched.
The artwork is embedded on the road where a fire hydrant once stood.
When the hydrant was removed about 10 years ago, it left a depression in the road.
Lim said the square hole did not come under MPPP’s jurisdiction but under Indah Water Konsortium.
In a news report yesterday, Lim had said the state government viewed the work in a positive light and would not demolish or whitewash any artwork even if the work was satirical and poured scorn on the state government.
