Sculpture by the Sea, 2012 (3)

This is my third and final post of sculptures from this year's Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.
Most were situated in or near Mark's Park which is about half way on the walk between Tamarama and Bondi Beaches. We sought out some shade for our lunch break at this spot.

Subodh Kerkar - the chilly

'The Portuguese brought chillies to Goa, which were disseminated all over the country, making India the largest producer of chillies in the world.' - from the artist's statement in the catalogue.  
By the way, it is spelt "chilly" in the catalogue

R.M. (Ron) Gomboc - repose

Cave Urban - mengenang (memory)

The wind-driven installation, shown above, is part of 222 bamboo 'bird-scarers' tuned to D-minor, 'which began as a reflection on the 222 lives lost in the Bali bombings'  - from the artist's statement in the exhibition catalogue. Bondi beach is seen in the background.

Sculpture by the Sea, 2012 (2)

The Bronte to Bondi coastal walk is a very scenic walk which can be enjoyed most days, not just when 'Sculpture by the Sea' is on.

Dave Mercer - ViewTM

(photo above) The artist's statement from the catalogue: "It often seems that even the most basic of human experiences need to be branded in order to seem important and valid."

Greer Taylor - transition

Mike MacGregor - finding alternatives (3 elements) 2011

Hidemi Tokutake - gregarious

Zhang Yangen - sea's nest

Rachel Couper & Ivana Kuzmanovska - mirador

'Mirador', which is made of plywood, timber and perspex, was created by two Master of Architecture graduates who are interested in the relationship between architecture and art.
