¬Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi is the largest free to the public outdoor sculpture exhibition in the world! It has become a major feature on the Australian cultural calendar, attracting participating artists from around the world.
Now in its nineteenth year the spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk is transformed into a 2km long temporary sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and across the world.
On Tuesday 3 November Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi with DART Connections, NSW Distance Learning invite you to visit this year’s Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi exhibition and meet one of the exhibiting artists.
Exhibition Tour Sculpture by the Sea Educator, Rachael, will introduce you to some very different types of sculpture in the exhibition area at Marks Park. She will love to hear your questions and responses.
She will discuss questions like:
• What materials and techniques are used to make sculpture?
• How do artists use sculpture to express an idea?
• What are the differences between making art for a gallery compared to outside?
Meet exhibiting artist Marina Debris and see some of her ‘Trashion’ …
“Every day for the past fifteen years I have been collecting trash from the beach. At first this was simply an effort to help clean up but just over five years ago I was inspired to make objects of art with it. After touring and working with the group 5 Gyres and Captain Charles Moore (who discovered the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”), I realised that art was a great vehicle to educate people about where our waste is going. Many of the artworks I have created are wearable art. I have over twenty outfits (all made from trash)”.
