Sydney Harbour foreshore will be the home of 18 Japanese rock sculptures by 14 Japanese artists from Japan and Australia. Many of the sculptures are made from rock.
David Handley, founding Director of Sculpture by the Sea, notes that " the artworks in thought and practice stems directly from the ancient rock gardens of Japan. . In addition, we are pleased to present kinetic and abstract sculptures to provide a cross section of Japanese sculpture today."
Anita Mitchell, Chief Executive, Placemaking NSW said, "Bringing 'Sculpture Rocks' to The Rocks precinct is a great opportunity to extend the amazing breadth of art in the area and bring a little bit of the Sculpture by the Sea magic to our CBD."
The exhibition will be along the Sydney Harbour foreshore, the area between the Overseas Passenger Terminal, along Campbells Cove, and ending at Hickson Reserve next to the Park Hyatt Hotel, is where you will be able to view these Japanese rock sculptures.
Sculpture Inside Rocks, which will be held concurrently, is an indoor exhibition of small contemporary sculpture. Sculpture Inside Rocks will be on display at Campbell's Stores, adjacent to the exhibition and directly above the restaurants lining Campbells Cove.
