Sculpture By The Sea – Tamarama to Bondi

06 Nov

Each year in October the coast line from Bondi to Tamarama becomes an open air art gallery hosting Sculptures By The Sea.  The event showcases modern sculptures by artists from around the world.  Now in it’s 16th year it gets better and better, whats more you get a good exercise along the 2km walk!

My three favourites have to be the glass sculpture above by Japanese Sculptor Toshio lezumi,  “Upside Down Again” by Norwegian Sculptor  Hilde A Danielsen (the wooden sculpture below), and “The Optimist” by Australian Sculptor Stephen Marr (The man in a sky suit below)…. although I have included a slide show of many others which were just as great. Which is your favourite?

    What a fabulous show! Wish there was something like that around here. There are a few great outdoor sculptures, but they are spread out and permanent – no exciting “guest” art!

      It is good fun, they are starting to run these around the works so hopefully one will edge your way 🙂

    BCD – my absolute, hands down favourite was Cave Urban’s Mengenang bamboo installation. I thought it was so beautiful!

    Awesome pics, my friend!

      He was actually there when we went to look around on Saturday and was chatting to a few people about his installation. It was really good, although I do not hunk that my picture did that one justice! 🙂

    Fantastic pics, BCD – look at you with your fancy slide show, love it! There are just too many amazing works to pick a favourite – the variety is incredible. And was that Mr BCD peeking out from the igloo-of-holes (not its official title, I’m sure)? 😉

    I loved the slide show but breathtaking doesn’t begin to describe this exhibit. The beauty of Toshi’s sculpture…there are no words. Thank You sooo much for sharing this with us!
