Sculpture by the sea: A visual essay
chapterposted on 15.07.2020, 00:00 by M Maxwell, Elizabeth EllisonElizabeth Ellison
Sculpture by the Sea is a sculpture festival that originated in Australia over twenty years ago. Now an iconic part of the landscape in its three locations (Bondi Beach and Cottesloe in Australia; Aarhaus in Denmark), the festival is arguably the biggest example of temporary, site-specific installations in the country. The two Australian locations are beachside and the beach landscape plays an integral role in the curation, interpretation and experience of these festivals. This chapter takes the form of a visual essay in which we reflect on our experiences of two specific festivals—Bondi Beach in 2016 and Cottesloe in 2018. The text and images are integrated to represent the research process as observers, documenters and researchers within the site.
