The Public Purse
Time Out says
It’s pretty difficult to miss British artist Simon Perry’s clam-like oversized pink purse sitting just outside the GPO in Bourke Street Mall. Called ‘The Public Purse’, Perry’s red granite sculpture speaks specifically to the area as a commercial hub – and a shopping destination – and also functions as a seat where you might wait for friends. Unfortunately, we’re reliably told there’s no cash inside, so you’ll have to look elsewhere if your own reserves are depleted from a full day of shopping.
