Sculpture By The Sea (3)

July 1, 2011

Read in my previous posts about the exhibition “Sculpture By The Sea”.

Here is my third post with photos from the exhibition:

Artist: Sasha Reid & Dominique Sutton (Australia)

Title: Melt

Statement: “The work is a quiet reminder of the effects of global warming on the sea level”

The sculpture consists of 5 of these special boats.

Artist: Lisa Anderson (Australia)

Title: Precious

Artist:Jørn Rønnau (Denmark)


Jørn Rønnau has created a number of sculptures and environmental art from wood and stone in Denmark and abroad.

Artist: Poul Bækhøj (Denmark)

Title: Screwing by the sea

In the foreground:

Artist: Anna Gunnarsdottir (Iceland)

Title: Procreation

Statement: “Felt-making involves the integration of woolen fibres. In my work, a feminine seashell is procreating with a masculine one on the sea-shore”.

Behind this:

Artist: Mehdi Yarmohammadi (Iran)

Title: The bird

Behind this you can among others see this:

Artist: IIan Sandler (Canada)

Title: Beach Chair

This is the southern end of the exhibition.

The work here is:

Artist: Marc Moser (Switzerland)

Title: Sea pink

I will publish one more post about “Sculpture By The Sea” next week.

Note: The selection of works on this blog are my own, and I have quoted the artists’ statements from the exhibition catalogue, where I found that they could help illustrating the work.

      I hope you like my last post – published today – about this lovely event 😉

    Oh, I missed this one.
    Even though Denmark is a small country – Aarhus is far away just for visiting an exhibition.
    Next time I’ll try harder getting there.

      I hope to see you here next time – in 2013. Or before – to see some other nice spots or attractions!

    My favorites are the screws and the boats on sticks. This is one fabulous exhibit.

    I think Screwing by the Sea takes the cake. What an awesome exhibit.

    I love the boats on sticks and the felt creations. I’d love to see them up close.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the exhibition too – I’m already looking foreward to the next one – in 2013!

    I sure could not create artwork like this but I sure can enjoy and marvel at them. I hope they find the giant who lost his/her sunglasses. 🙂

      I’m glad the giant did not decide to increase the excitement by turning up when I was there!!

    Some very interesting sculptures.

    Very enjoyable art indeed. Especially I loved those huge sunglasses and the photo called: “Screwing by the sea”, which reminded me from my post:

    Art made from plates, chains and bolts
