Sculpture by the Sea, Sydney, Australia

by - 11/29/2017

Sometimes one plans a trip keeping certain events in mind. And sometimes there are lucky coincidences. We were quite lucky that in this Australasian trip of ours, we got to witness 3 events by chance: Sculpture by the sea and Halloween in Sydney and Gulangan festival in Bali. Life is all about experiences and our lives definitely got enriched by these events.

When we were researching about the beaches in Sydney, we decided to take the coastal walk...the hike along the Pacific ocean connecting the world famous Bondi Beach to Coogee beach (6kms) with a couple of beaches in between. That is when I came to know about Sculpture by the sea, the largest sculpture exhibition in the world which is free to the public.
Sculpture by the sea is held annually in Sydney from 23 October to 5 November and in March in Perth. This exhibition started way back in 1997. Super excited I was as our stay in Sydney matched with the exhibition date, I put a little research as what to expect and how did this start.
I learnt that the founder David Handley had been wanting something free for the community in Sydney and his education in Prague fuelled this idea. Initially he thought of an art exhibition but protecting paintings from the elements of nature on the sea shore was a challenge and hence this idea was put down. He then came up with the Sculpture concept and the exhibition was just for one day back in 1997. As years passed, this exhibition grew by leaps and bounds with artists from all over Australia taking part and sponsors pouring in huge amount of money. It's indeed a unique concept because where do you get to see the amalgamation of art and ocean?
The exhibition is held along the coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama beach. We started our walk from Bondi ( we were staying in Bondi) and were mesmerized as we started seeing the creations. The sculptures ranged from metallic structures to glass creations to even jute like material. Each piece was unique in it's own sense. And the deep blue Pacific ocean provided the perfect backdrop for these creations! Now that we are back to India, we have realised how lucky we have been to have experienced all this!
