Where I went last week – Sculptures by the Sea

I look forward to this event every year.

The fact that my niece and her boyfriend are visiting from Holland makes it even more of an excuse to go. Where the views complement art and vica versa.

 

It is worth doing the Bondi to Tamarama Coastal walk even without the sculptures, the art is just the icing on the cake, and my favourite pieces are the ones that incorporate the surroundings. The exhibition stretches for 2km and features 109 sculptures from Australia and from all over the world.

 

We headed off late afternoon after I finished work, and it was the perfect time to go. In the previous years we went in the weekends, and it was just too uncomfortable with the crowds on the small paths. Start Point: Bondi Icebergs! The pool being a much photographed art piece all by itself!

The exhibition ends this weekend, on Sunday 9th of November in Sydney. Go see it if you can!

 

So I lied. They weren’t my favourites. The next 2 are my favourites. My niece and her boyfriend, and my niece and my daughter.

  1. Something went wrong when I tried to comment (I think it was my internet connection) – so if you end up with two from me, feel free to delete one!

    They are lovely pics. I particularly like the second one of the cloud reflections in the giant flint, which really captures that interaction between sculpture and surroundings that makes Sculpture by the Sea so special. That was one of my favourites too, as was the bottle-top sculpture Overconsumption. Love the reptilian effect you’ve got there, it looks alive, crawling over the rocks.

    I took the morning off work to go but I didn’t have enough time to see the Tamara end, so I’m enjoying catching up with what I missed through blogs like yours, thanks.
