Swell Sculpture Festival is on again this year, and Marie-France Rose has another amazing installation on display before she heads overseas for a residency in Canada. Her spectacular piece called Cirque du Ciel (Circus of the Sky) is definitely a highlight in this years event. A beautiful carousel of elegant acrobats that sway in the breeze. It’s well worth a visit to the seaside (even for a sand phobe like me…). The sculptures on display at Currumbin range from thought provoking and controversial through to the sublime and exquisite. I was so drawn into the experience that by the time I got to the end of the beach I mistook a toppled lifesaver’s stand for an installation until it dawned on me that there were no name plaques..now that’s an immersive experience!
The display runs until 20 September 2015. Visit the website for more details.
