Sculpture by the Sea, outdoor exhibition in Australia

The 9th Annual Sculpture By The Sea Transforms Spectacular Cottesloe From 8 – 25 March, 2013

Sculpture by the Sea returns to Cottesloe Beach with over 70 sculptures set to transform Perth’s most popular beach into a sculptural wonderland for the 9th annual exhibition from 8 – 25 March 2013.

Over 70 artists from across WA, Australia and 12 different countries will create Perth’s largest outdoor sculpture exhibition that stretches along the white sands and grassed terraces of Cottesloe beach to the groyne overlooking the Indian Ocean.

This year’s exhibition includes works from some of the world’s most distinguished artists including the UK’s Sir Anthony Caro OM, China’s Chen Wenling and Professor Sui Jianguo, along with the recipient of the main prize at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2012 – the Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Prize – US artist, Peter Lundberg.  Lundberg’s work from last year’s Cottesloe exhibition was acquired by the Town of Cottesloe for its collection and is located at the southern end of Marine Parade.  Each year the Town of Cottesloe purchases a work for their permanent collection valued up to $40,000.

Nearly half of the artists in this year’s Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe are from WA including Ron Gomboc, Jennifer Cochrane, Ayad Alqaragholli, Alessandra Rossi and one of the recipients of last year’s prestigious Helen Lempriere Scholarship, Tom de Munk-Kerkmeer.

Over 220,000 people are expected to visit Cottesloe Beach during the 18-day exhibition, from serious art-lovers and collectors to people who do not normally visit galleries but who have come to enjoy the exhibition from year to year while enjoying the sun, sea and sand.

Here’s more about this project from Dennis Ammann, their gallery director:

Interviewer:Could you describe the scope of the 5 Pieces Gallery?
Mr. Ammann: The 5 Pieces Gallery represents a select group of emerging and established artists and is commited to introducing groundbreaking art. We try to offer an original and multidisciplinary programme, showing artists from all horizons to an
international audience. Our clients are as heterogenous as our artists, we deliever the whole spectrum of clients from the poor art student up to the rich art collector, some are buying works to hang on their walls, others see a great investment in it and some just want to support young artists.

Interviewer: Where do you find artists and what is your metric of selection?
Mr. Ammann: First and foremost the artist and the individual work must appeal to me personally. It’s a dangerous philosophy to follow trends or, worse still, a mathematical calculation in the hope of making money. Whether we like it or not, art is emotional, it
evokes an emotional reaction. After the initial spark, the originality of the work is essential. It’s also important to us that our line-up features artists who come from a variety of countries and cultures, providing diversity in content, perspective and style.
Furthermore, since we see art as an important means of social and political engagement, the gallery has a desire to challenge the viewers, social norms and itself.
So it’s not only about technique, beauty or understanding of light and figure, it’s more about how well the art mirrors the society of its day. In the end, I think good art stands out on its own merits, and we still like to believe that this reigns supreme. We ignore and
avoid the hype, we judge the work with our eyes and hearts and not our ears. Popularity should not be confused with importance. However, our purpose is to showcase the very best artistic talent the world has to offer, so we put a lot of effort into the search for new
talent. It is imporant to us to show them from the beginning honestly how we work and what we have to offer, and be supportive rather than prescriptive in approach.
