The Dancer and Bureaucratic Tank

Sculpture by the Sea is an annual event.  This is the 14th time, the coastal walkway has become an artspace.  With local and international artists contributing sculptures small to grand and made from steel to recycled products, there is a real diversity in the 2010 Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.  This year it will be held from 28 Oct - 14 November 2010.  

There are 109 sculptures on display from Bondi to Bronte Beach, but I missed the indoor display.  This is the consequence of being too occupied in taking photographs.


(Above)  I love this reflective artwork.  It's called "The Dancer".  You'll see your own reflection dances. 



(Above) Edward Horne's artwork, Bureaucratic Tank.  This piece has lots of detail, look closer and you'll see filing cabinets, steels, office lights and other discards. 

Don't you just love their creativity?

That's an amazing piece, the top one. Even getting it to stand upright is quite a feat. Thanks for sharing. Any more? It's like bringing the exhibition to us. Much appreciated. Thank you.

Uli,
You are paying attention :o)

Mei Teng, Autumn Belle, Wille,
I am impressed with some of the sculptures too. Some are too abstract and other are quite sophisticated.

Fufu,
Coming to visit soon? Will you be touring the whole country?

Lily Riani,
Producing these pictures are not too hard. Just with a bit of techniques.

Tekkaus,
Thanks for the compliment :o)

Happysurfer, Bananazஇ
Many seem to like The Dancer. I didn't even know its name until I came home. There will be a couple more sculptures but not the remaining 107 of them.

Wow! looks amazing to me!

Always thought of Australia as a boring place, just a great place for scenery.

But seeing all this creativity really makes me have a different perspective.

Didn't notice the file cabinets and stuffs of the tank until you pointed that out, haha. That's how lousy I am at spotting the finer things in life.

Great pics, Ai Shiang! ^_^

hey, Can see you in the reflection! Beautiful pics as usual! :D

Ai Shiang said...

Foongpc,
Glad that you like them!

ShingoT,
You need a local or guided tour to bring to to places of interest. If "do it yourself tour" you might miss many events or places. As most tourists do not know where to look for those information. I guess it is the same in any part of the world, isn't it?

Gina,
Haha! That's me. Very observant!
