Diggers Camp Entry: Sculpture by the Sea


Here is our final entry in the 'Clarence Valley Sculpture by the Sea- Fringe Festival' presented at the tiny seaside enclave of Diggers Camp.
The celebrated Hungarian sculptor, Anouska De' Valoise, has created an art installation called 'Drought!'. The catalogue describes it as 'challenging Australians to think more about the water wastage as the purest eau de source tumbles over the harshness of the stony unforgiving environment.'
The Daily Examiner, the Clarence Valley's local rag paper, has sensationally noted a series of confrontations which have occurred between the artist and locals who have interfered with the carefully arranged pebbles and casually used it as a refreshing shower after their dip in the briny sea. De' Valoise can now be found nearby on a stripy canvas deck chair guarding her work day and night!

This is the last entry in the competition, thanks to Ern Malley for your inspiration and the generous comments by CVT followers. 'Normal service' on CVT should will hopefully resume tomorrow.

  2. Who needs 'normal' service? NOt that there's anything wrong with it, but this series has been most fascinating!

    Especially the artist response to this one - if she is indeed making a statement about water wastage, then 'using' the sculpture's water fits right in??!!
