Sooo Sydney - Sculpture by the Sea: George Saunders Talks About Writing

Sculpture by the Sea, an open-air exhibition at Bondi, features 104 sculptures from 16 countries even Tatranka-folkloric May Pole, phallic oak, from bohemian Czech Republic...

The theme of this year's booklet was rather latitudional Cold Riverish as 21 is the age of escapes, of daring and crazy impossible dreams, of being different, of staying away from decaying society, environment and the futility of sameness and echo chambers...

21 years ago, there was a hastily arranged exhibition on the scenic walk from Bondi to Tamarama Beach – literally a one-night stand – that drew a sizeable crowd and was deemed a success. It is no exaggeration to say that Sculpture by the Sea has had a fundamental impact on sculpture in Australia, having attracted, over the years, some 1272 sculptors. Today, it is the most popular sculpture event in the world and, in its 18-day duration, attracts more than half a million visitors. It remains free, democratic and secular with a huge diversity of styles, philosophies of sculpture and mediums – from relatively ephemeral sticks and threads that flutter in the wind, to huge stone arches, expansive steel constructions and monumental bronzes. Curatorially, this is a very broad-church approach to the art of sculpture.

Peter Tilley's "Dreams of ordinary people".

“Two different hitters will generally talk the same game, but then one gets in and hits a homer and the other strikes out. (And that hitter is you, the writer, on different days, even.) So: an element of mystery has to pertain—which I really like…this idea of writing as more of a muscular, visceral act, in which the writer brings all that she is to that moment but can’t really explain what happens next.”
