Which are closest to the actual captions supplied by ABC arts writer Emma Rogers to the images below? Test your captioning skillz:
a) Peter Adams eases out from underneath A Star Bangled Spanner after installing it on a cliff near Bondi Beach. Adams says his artwork represents the United States’ meddling in world affairs, causing unrest to continue, like a ‘spanner in the works’. Do Americans use that expression?
b) Phillip Adams is jammed beneath A Spannered Bangle Star after mistaking the artwork for a cake. Adams says the artwork clearly resembles a large, particularly delicious cake, such as he has delivered to his house whenever ‘I want cake’. Do Americans use that expression?
c) Grizzly Adams is trapped by a wheel-changing tool after attempting to replace a flat tyre on his enormous SUV. Soon bear cubs will eat him. Karma, imperialist bear-molesting dude! Do Americans use that expression?
a) A jogger does push ups on a rock in front of Refuge, by New Zealand-born Denise Hume, which, the photo notes tell me, is a response to the refugee situation in Australia.
b) A logger does push ups on a rock in front of an old-growth forest he’s just harvested, which, the photo notes tell me, is an arrogant denial of the greenhouse crisis in Australia.
c) A virgin attempts to prove he is sexually experienced lest primitive Sydney villagers burn him in a wicker man, under construction in the background.
a) Swiss-born artist Verena Truninger finalises her work, Messengers, which conveys her reverence to the mystery of spirit and nature.
b) Swiss-born artist Trerena Vuringer finalises her work, Couriers, which conveys her mystery at the reverence of spirit and nature.
c) Sydney-born artist Torana Verandah finalises her work, Staffers, which conveys her mysterious reverence of the ABC.
