17th Biennale of Sydney Installations
A recent trip to Sydney saw me hop a ferry to Cockatoo Island to see the installations, which are part of the 17th Biennale of Sydney.
West of Sydney’s CBD, Cockatoo Island’s amazing spaces and history as a former prison and shipyard make it a fabulous location to exhibit the work of over 54 contemporary artists from around the world.
I went to the Turbine Hall to see artist Cai Guo-Qianga’s gravity-defying installation of nine cars suspended from the ceiling, each one shot through by rods covered in lights. The nine cars, seven of which are suspended, show a cartoon-like slow motion rollover, with the first and last on the ground.
It was amazing!
