Eighteen sculptures will line the foreshores of Sydney Harbour this week, many of which may be provocative to the eye but still encapsulate the artistic flair that internationally acclaimed sculptor Xu Hongfei wanted to achieve.

In his first outdoor exhibition, Xu Hongfei will display his modern Chinese sculptures around Campbell's cove spaced between the Overseas Passengers Terminal and the Park Hyatt Hotel.

When walking around the marble, bronze and oiled sculptures it is easy for one to be awed by the interesting poses that each statue is positioned into. But an image is worth more than mere words, so take a look at the images below:

If you'd like to see all 18 statues, pop in to the Harbour foreshore and take a wander around Campbell's cove. Take photos of yourself posing in the most innovative ways with each statue. The person who posts the best pose photo on the Hongfei Xu Arts Facebook page will win a Nikon Coolpix 6500 Compact Camera to be posted to your home (but it only counts if you like the page.

For those who feel like popping down on the weekend, a Masterclass with Xu Hongfei will be held on the 22nd June, followed by a Frolics Freeze Frame competition on the Sunday.

So there is no excuse. There is plenty to see and be apart of at the Foreshore Frolics.The exhibition will close on the 27th of June so you have a limited window to see what is there to see.
