Art and About - Laneway Art

Its festival time in Sydney again with Art and About and Crave on this month, Sculpture by the Sea next month then Sydney Festival in January. Unfortunately its grey and dreary.

I'm not overly impressed by Art and About this year, apart from Sydney Life which is always worth a look. A lot of the installations are also difficult to find. I'll swear they have the locations wrong on their map.


This is Donut by Brook Andrew: A large inflated PVC form takes the shape of a donut floating high above our heads. As we walk underneath the silhouette is a familiar every-day shape. But scale and context suggests this is nothing like a regular donut, transformed instead into a striking black and white matrix of Wiradjuri design. The shape references ancient European and Indigenous depictions of time travel and healing, and the popular contemporary notion of a ‘pie in the sky’.

I am hanging out for a suitable evening to go into the town hall to try to capture that tsunami.
