More culture at Swell 2013 (part 2)

Walking along such a popular and pretty part of the coast at sunset is a pleasant experience any time of year, during Swell it is made more interesting by the addition of sculptures scattered across the sand and along the esplanade. There are children, dogs and happy snappers everywhere, and even though the signs all say ‘Please don’t climb on the sculptures’, many of them are begging for interaction and it is possible to walk around and through some of the installations. Looking back, I have to wonder whether a theme for the festival could be one of interaction, encouraging children and adults to participate in the piece, firing up their imagination and expressing their creativity.

This gallery is the second of three galleries that I’ll be posting and featuring work from the Swell Sculpture Festival, I hope you enjoy the photographs as much as I enjoyed the exhibition.

      The piggy was very popular, it is a fun piece and the colour is great against the blue sky. Looking forward to seeing Sculpture by the Sea through your eyes TSL!

    This is stunning, love the sculptures! My favourite has to be the flying pig as I am still giggling after seeing it.

      Thank you, and the flying pig was certainly very popular, everybody who saw it walked away smiling.
