Bondi’s Sculpture by the Sea,  20 Oct – 6 Nov,  2016

 

Late Spring in the Southern Hemisphere brings warm weather to Sydney and its annual sculpture festival at Bondi Beach, now celebrating its 20th year. The picturesque coastline for 1.4 km between Bondi and Tamarama is transformed into the world’s largest annual free-to-the-public outdoor sculpture exhibition. More than 100 sculpture works by Australian and international artists are being showcased this year, including artist representation from Asia, Europe, Middle East, New Zealand, South America, UK and USA.

Sculpture by the Sea has never been curated to a theme and would continue to support the artist’s right to freedom inventing their own universes “inclusive of all modes of sculpture, demonstrating sculpture’s history and development”, founding director, David Handley said. Since its inaugural show in 1997, ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ has inspired 1168 artists to create more than 2000 sculptures.
Some sculptors tend to think of their creations as ‘breathing’, and I’m sure their sculptures would be responding to the vibrancy of this iconic location. The sculptural walk will be running from 20 October – 6 November. Also shown are images from Cottesloe ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ which runs in Perth in early March.

Johannes missed the deadline to freight his work from Perth to Sydney so he loaded it onto a trailer and drove it 3297 km across Australia to Bondi. His effort was rewarded as Change Ahead, a curvaceous piece made of rusted corten steel, has been named winner of the $60,000 Aqualand Sculpture Prize at Sculpture by the Sea, 2016
