It’s that exciting time of year again when Cottesloe Beach becomes a platform of world-famous sculptures, Sculpture by the Sea. Over 70 local, national and international artists have featured their finest work for Perth’s 10th anniversary.
The exhibition will run until March 24, 2014.
Our Favourite Sculptures:
Norton Flavel ‘Bulk Carrier’
Celebrates Australian culture having an abundance – in relation to consumerism and having a lot of “stuff”- and our ingenuity to decipher wants from needs.
Marina DeBris ‘Aquarium’
DeBris started collecting the trash displayed in her sculpture’s perspex box, ‘Aquarium of the Pacific gyre’ years ago to keep her local beach clean. This Sculpture is inspiration to beach-goers to rethink disposing of rubbish at the beach.
Hiroyuki Kita ‘Like a flower swaying in the wind’
Winner of the $50,000 Roy Hill Sculpture Prize.
Annette Thas ‘Wave of Memory’
A representation of childhood memories. All barbies are second hand and each reflect a unique memory.
Ken Unsworth ‘There’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip’
is made from timber, a bicycle, a plastic skeleton and a foam boulder. The name of the sculpture implies that whilst the outcome of a situation or event may seem certain, there is possibility that things can still go wrong.
