Biennale Art Reflections

Last week I went to Cockatoo Island with a friend who had not been to the Biennale Exhibition. I had been there a couple of weeks before but was happy to go again. The art is an experience to say the least, from giant plastic shower curtains to thumping sonic accompaniments and videos and pieces so minimalist you have to hunt for the image in a few blurry squiggles. All in all it's a good day out with stunning harbour views and I found a few reflections, of course  ;) but my favourite 'art' is the machinery and old buildings that are heritage listed. The island, a short ferry ride from Sydney CBD, had been a prison in colonial days and then one of Australia's premier shipbuilding yards.











Of course it was also a good opportunity for 'selfies'. Have a good weekend,
Val.
