'Act of Parliament'
UK based interventionists Shift//Delete (Bill Posters & Peter Marcuse) turn the Gherkin building in the City of London into the world's biggest penis in response to Parliaments failure to challenge the bankers that caused the financial crisis.
'Parliament does nothing to challenge the bankers, they have been captured and they are constantly gratifying the City of London whilst the rest of us have austerity imposed on us.’
‘In response to this reality, we have turned the Gherkin into the worlds tallest penis. A penis that is being gratified by our parliament with a sexual act. A 180m high erection for deregulation and global capitalism. We have created this art work for all those that are suffering cuts to their budgets, benefits, working hours, rights, freedoms and quality of life as Parliament perpetuates the age old practice of taxing the poor for the mistakes of the rich.’
