Christy Rupp, Polytox Park (16th August-30th September 1983)



Poloytox Park was a satirical tribute to the forces of urban blight and chemical poisons, featuring a mock toxic waste dump, and rats, a lizard and a dog cast from cement, all amid artificial, imported debris. (Pritkin and Searcy 1983: 63)
