Sculpture Onshore 2012


Richard Wedekind sculptures Buoys - Ideas straining against the tide on the cliff overlooking the Hauraki Gulf.

This is a great place for a sculpture show with the works perched on the cliff edge overlooking the gulf and Rangitoto Island. A huge selection on display including more hilarious oversized work by Christian Nicholson, not as large as his 7 metre tall naked man that featured in 2010 though.

The kids love it, it's like some bizarre adventure playground, and they enjoy checking out the children's works in the old Navy tunnels below. Standout for me is Sacha Nunn's 'Fukushima in the Ocean of Complacency'.

Check it out NZ Sculpture Onshore, Fort Takapuna, Auckland. It's for a great cause and on until this Sunday, the 18th of November.
