After last’s year’s Sculpture by the Sea was cut short due to Covid, it is fantastic to see the world’s largest free public sculpture exhibition has returned to Cottesloe Beach for its 17th year. The 18 day exhibition is taking place from 5 – 22 March 2021 and features 70 sculptures from local and international artists.
Some of our favourite sculptures included;
The Kimberley-inspired giant boab tree by Rockingham artist Tuinna Blackie
Structural Wave by Jarrod Taylor
Chrysails by Lucy Barker
Labyrinth by Andrea Vinkovic
Home Made by Denise Pepper
A Conversation Between A House And A Tree by Peter Hill.
And so many others!
The kids really loved Dream of Cyprus by Savako
Interacting Fences by Georgia Taylor-Berry + Jesse Taylor is a great one for the kids who like to be interactive with the sculptures.
The sculptures are spread along the sand and grassy areas between the Cottesloe Surf Club and just north of the Indiana.
Organisers have done their best to make the event Covid Safe, with SafeWA check-in points, hand sanitiser stations and Covid marshals.
While the event is free, visitors are asked to donate ($5 per person or $10 per family) to help cover event costs and ensure Sculpture by the Sea returns to Perth next year.
