Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi Beach is an annual tradition for me. I’ve been visiting for a number of years now and I’m always amazed by the creativity of the artists to work within such a unique space. I went on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The clouds looked menacing for most of the morning, but cleared up to reveal nothing but golden sunshine rays.
Another tradition I have is to kick off the stroll amongst the artwork with a hearty lunch at Hurricanes. We’ve always bought some take out from the express store and picnic on the grassy knolls overlooking the beach. Nothing could be better! It was one of those moments where you can’t help but feel a little proud to be living in an amazing country.
Gorgeous scenery. Just a warning that it gets a little more photo heavy. I might put the rest under a cut. It was so hard to cull the images!
I loved this glass sculpture. That said there have been some similar ones in previous years. It is just so stunning against the crashing waves in the background.
There were a few gorgeous geometric pieces. I don’t know what it is but I love things arranged neatly. Must be the OCD in me.
This installation made the most intriguing sound. The wind would turn the feather mills and produced a xylophone-like song.
Reminiscent of milk bars, I absolutely loved the colourful ribbon art.
Not too sure about the rabbit and dog on a horse slash donkey. Hmm. This is the censored side.
More geometry. I love it.
Reflections in giant rectangular prisms.
This reminds me of the melting ice cream truck a few years back…
It was a great day out. It involved quite a bit of walking (read: we walked from Bondi to Coogee). Good exercise but I needed a slurpee at 7-11 to keep me going mid-walk. It was refreshing in the heat.
If you haven’t yet seen the sculptures, you have this weekend to pop down before they disappear until next year!
