Sculpture By the Sea in Sydney, Australia

I just got back from installing You are (on) an island in Sydney, Australia. The sculpture is included in the 16th Annual Sculpture By the Sea exhibition at Bondi, which opened on October 18th and closes on November 4th, 2012. The work is sited in Mark's Park, which is on the coastal walk between Bondi Beach and Tamarama Bay.

Here are some installation shots. The work was lifted by a crane and placed on top of a shipping container so that it could be viewed from a distance at night.

I am extremely grateful for the help I received from my assistants Kate Sheldon and Tom Wilcox, and for the housing accommodations and good conversations provided by Rebecca Conroy of Bill + George. It was a whirlwind trip, but I was fortunate to meet many wonderful people in a very short time. And I got to exhibit my work in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
