I went to the Sydney Biennale today and took a crappy digi camera along for the ride- so i thought i would share them with you all!
Ok we begin the journey from my place near the blue mountains- this is a view from the stairs at my train station, and the station itself, that was built in the later 1880's
The Biennale is scattered through many locations in Sydney, but most are focused around the CBD. To walk to the first location you have to go through Hyde Park- which is a mini central park, and includes a war memorial
First stop Hyde Park Barracks
Artworks in Hyde Park Barracks- Milica Tomic Container and Miroslaw Balka The Stop. Both works are rather tragic and emotional and were perfect in this location.
ok we go past St Mary's Cathedral...
to get to the Art Gallery Of NSW
Ok i obviously couldnt take any pics while i was in there, so you are going to have to take my word for it that they were excellent!
Across the road from the Art Gallery we have the Domain, a multi use space that is used for sports during lunch times and concerts during summer on the weekends
next we walk through the Sydney Botanical Gardens
So we have ended up at Circular Quay- it was very busy, lots of buskers and tourists.
and here is the most conversial building in Sydney- named 'The Toaster' its development ended views of the Botanical Gardens from the Quay
ok and a crazy busker!
From there we visited the Museum of Contemporary Art, which is at the Quay, and the artworks again were amazing- a lot of crazy interactive stuff, very good.
Then the last leg of our journey was to Pier 2/3, the last warehouse pier left in Sydney
It contained many amazing works including Asian Field by Antony Gormley, which is made up of 180,000 hand made clay figurines.
Last shot in this series is the Harbour Bridge and Pier 1
Hope you all enjoyed it, and if you are interested check out the Biennale website http://www.bos2006.com.au
