Cockatoo Island

The venue we’ve been setting our sights on –¬†Cockatoo Island. The name itself rings of adventure and mystery, and we were not disappointed…

(Couldn’t resist)

 

The interior of the buildings which used to be prisons, then workshops. The industrial vibes are very mesmerizing. And yes, once again I was more interested in the space than the art exhibits themselves.

So fortunate to get a beautiful end to the day.

 

The Space of Carriageworks

Originally planned to visit this:

 

But while the exhibits were interesting, I was more captivated by the space and venue structures than the exhibits themselves.

Space implies¬†possibilities. Anticipation of new things. Allowance for growth. Maybe that’s why space is always associated with creativity. We need it.

Ghost of Capitol Theatre

 

A beautiful exhibit which pays homage to our disappearing culture and history.

Beautiful, and sad.

Is this going to be the only way which the younger generation will remember these vintage places of memories and culture? Through art exhibits and museums? While the rest of the country engages in never-ending progress and development?

Happy 50!

 

One of my favourites at this year’s Biennale so far. I was literally grinning in amusement from the moment I walked in, till the end of the song. (Yes, I sat and listened to the song from beginning to end. Good arrangement.. Though I can’t say the same for the lyrics ;p)

We don’t often think about how political events, on such a seemingly large scale, actually affect our daily lives, but the fact is they do. And it might do us good to be more aware of that fact!

If The World Changed (@Art Museum)

“In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.”
– Ernst Fischer
